Cleats for Kids is a Denver Broncos Alumni Association (DBAA) initiative to ensure that children of all means have the opportunity to experience the wonderful life lessons that football has to offer. As former professional athletes, we recognize that our earliest years in football were the most formative. That’s where we first learned about teamwork, commitment, sacrifice and doing our best for ourselves and for our teammates. But these early years are also the time at which young parents—particularly single-family households with multiple children—struggle to pay the high registration and equipment costs associated with youth football. The DBAA Cleats for Kids program provides FREE cleats to football players in the Denver Police Activities League. Denver PAL serves a diverse constituency of high-risk, high-need children, and the benefits of the Cleats for Kids program is immediate and impactful.The Denver Police Activities League (Denver PAL) was founded in 1967 and its purpose is to is an organization in which members of the police force coach young boys and girls in sports, help with homework and provide other after-school activities for children, including educational and leadership programs. The purpose is to build character, strengthen police-community relations and keep children off illegal drugs, out of gangs, and on a positive path. The program relies on support and help from volunteers in the community. The children that Denver PAL supports come from some of the toughest neighborhoods in the state of Colorado. These are neighborhoods with the highest dropout rates, highest rates of teen pregnancy, highest rates of gang activity, highest drug use and highest crime rates. Any support given to Denver PAL is truly going to serve the young people who most need the assistance.
