DENVER — The Broncos and Mile High United Way are looking to make an impact surrounding the NFL's 100-year anniversary.

The pair will will host the inaugural "Denver Day of Service" on Friday, June 7, challenging the community to participate in 100-minute service projects. The Broncos hope to make this an annual event, and it is expected to include team employees, cheerleaders and players.

The event takes place the day after the Broncos end their veteran mandatory minicamp before taking a break before training camp begins in July. Additional information will be announced in May.

“With the NFL celebrating its 100th season, Denver Day of Service is an impactful way for fans to join the Broncos in highlighting the league’s tradition of giving back,” Broncos President & CEO Joe Ellis said. “These 100-minute service projects—in partnership with Mile High United Way—will bring together our organization, local non-profits and our fans to benefit our community.”

At this point, in excess of 20 organizations have stepped forward to host service projects. Volunteers can sign up here: https://volunteer.unitedwaydenver.org/event/104732-Denver-Day-of-Service .
