The 11th annual giveSPORTS Equipment Drive, presented by Colorado Honda Dealers, will be held at Ball Arena on Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 9 – 11:00 am in the Toyota 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.
