DENVER, CO – (November 15, 2017) – What does a Denver Bronco do on his day off? Emmanuel Sanders spent his evening launching his Gear Up community outreach program, an initiative of the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation.  

Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Emmanuel Sanders welcomed 10 kids to A Precious Child to launch the Gear Up community outreach program. The program provided Denver boys and girls with sports equipment so they are all geared up and equipped to play sports. Emmanuel provided these 10 deserving kids with all new adidas sports equipment, an Emmanuel Sanders Foundation branded sports equipment bag to hold their equipment and t-shirt, a signed picture of Emmanuel and a Super Bowl 50 football.  

Inspired by A Precious Child’s giveSPORTs program and mission of providing sports equipment to kids in need so they can participate in sports, Emmanuel’s goal through his Gear Up program is to help get kids in the game by providing sports equipment to kids that need it the most.   Emmanuel based his first community outreach program around sports because bigger than the game itself, kids derive and learn life fundamentals from sports, such as teamwork, discipline, perseverance and cultivating a strong work ethic. For Emmanuel, it is the long-term goal of sports that is important for him which is that life fundamentals that come from playing sports help kids to succeed in any profession that they may chose.    

It was night full of fun for Emmanuel and the 10 lucky kids who got to spend the evening with him at A Precious Child. This is the first of many great things to come from Emmanuel and the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation.  

Additionally, Emmanuel announced that he is partnering with New Era and Lids to help collect winter clothes, books and toys for A Precious Child. Collection points will be at 6 Lids stores in Denver – Cherry Creek Mall, Southwest Plaza, Flatiron Crossing, Town Center at Aurora, Park Meadows and Colorado Mills. Donations can be made starting on Wednesday, November 22 through Wednesday, December 6.
