Last Tuesday, Russell Wilson and his fellow mate Matt Henningsen, a defensive end for the Broncos, made their way to St. Anthony Hospital to visit patients battling cancer. The QB and defensive end spoke with the patients, bringing comfort and positivity to the room and sharing their support. Wilson took to Instagram to share the moments as he wrote, “Incredibly grateful to visit the amazing folks at @centurahealth with @mdhenningsen at St. Anthony Hospital today. Thank you for inspiring us and keep on fighting!”

The Broncos were at the hospital as part of the team’s “Fight Like a Bronco” campaign, launched in honor of Denver Broncos Assistant Turf Manager Luke Kellerman, who died of colorectal cancer in October 2017. This campaign serves to raise awareness about the disease and the need for early detection and extends support to those who are battling cancer. Since 2016, the Broncos have raised more than $339,300 for the cause. Each year, the franchise players and other staff visit patients at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado as part of the initiative.
