We strive to serve our community through education, health and fitness initiatives, athletic programs, and direct aid, with the particular purpose of helping families, children, veterans, and the disabled. Kroenke Sports Charities provides relevant programs and support, directly and with other nonprofit organizations, to ultimately assist, encourage, and enrich the lives of those in need.
The 12th annual giveSPORTS Equipment Drive, presented by Colorado Honda Dealers, will be held at Ball Arena on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM in the RAV4 Parking Lot (located between 9th and 11th street; between Chopper Cir. and Auraria Pkwy.). Kroenke Sports Charities, in partnership with A Precious Child and Colorado Honda Dealers, invites the public to support underprivileged children by dropping off new and gently-used sports equipment. Participation in extracurricular sports significantly impacts short and long-term educational, emotional, behavioral and physical outcomes for disadvantaged, poverty-stricken youth.

Donors attending the event on September 23rd will receive a tax donation letter and voucher good for two (2) tickets to a Nuggets or Avalanche pre-season home game, while supplies last. Cash donations will be accepted at the event. Monetary donations can also be made online at any time by visiting https://apreciouschild.org/donate-givesports/.
