The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway is donating $50,000 to the Colorado COVID Relief Fund.
Elway’s personal donation follows a $500,000 donation by the team.
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said in a statement: “Year after year, Coloradans have supported our Denver Broncos, and today I am beyond proud to thank the Denver Broncos for their support of Coloradans in our time of need.”
The Broncos also donated 100,000 meals to the Food Bank of the Rockies and jointly hosted a personal protective equipment drive at their stadium last weekend.
Elway said he wanted to support hospital workers, doctors and nurses who are the front line in the coronavirus pandemic. Elway mentioned his son-in-law, who is a doctor in Sacramento, California. “They truly are the warriors,” Elway said.
