Broncos Country, it's time to break out the purple!
At least for one day.
Saturday, August 4 will be a special day at Denver Broncos Training Camp at UCHealth Training Center.
The team has proclaimed it to be Alzheimer's Awareness Day and is requesting that fans attending practice wear purple.
This is a cause close to the Broncos. Owner Mr. Pat Bowlen has been battling the disease and his wife, Ms. Annabel Bowlen was recently diagnosed with it.
Allie Pisching is the Broncos Senior Director of Community Development. She spoke with KOA NewsRadio's Mike Rice and shared about Alzheimer's Awareness Day.
Practice begins at 9:30 a.m. MDT on Saturday.
