Bronco Woodyard Helps Raise Funds For Youth At Risk

DENVER (CBS4)– Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard wants to help kids so on Tuesday night he was a special guest at a fundraiser to benefit the non-profit organization, Colorado Youth at Risk (www.coyar.org).  Colorado Youth at Risk is one of the many local agencies that Woodyard donates his time & talent to in the greater Denver area.

Woodyard has his own foundation to help kids called Wesley Woodyard’s 16Ways Foundation.

He feels very strongly about giving back.

“This is my first event of the year, and this basically kicks off everything that I do during the season,” Woodyard told CBS4. “Everything that I raise during this dinner goes to my free football camps.”

Woodyard will host another event on Sept. 25 — an “MVP Dinner” from 6 to 8 p.m. at Sullivan’s Steakhouse on 1745 Wazee Street.

Woodyard and his family started the 16Ways Foundation a few years ago. On the website the foundation describes their mission as follows:

The 16Ways Foundation recognizes an emotional need for at-risk youth. At-risk youth require reassurance that they matter, in order for them to achieve their highest possible academic and social levels, with the intent to become productive, contributing members of society.
