April is the month of the military child, one way we’re celebrating military kids this month is by teaming up with Operation Teammate and CU Boulder to provide front range military kids the opportunity to be honorary teammates on the CU Boulder Football Team, experience a VIP behind the scenes tour and interaction with the players. During the event on April 13th, CU Boulder provided a behind the scenes look at the Buffs’ athletic facility, the kids had an opportunity to don helmets and uniforms and taking the field. Most importantly, the football team spent one-on-one time with the kids, making them feel special. Thanks to CU’s media team for putting together this video:
Operation Teammate is a nonprofit organization based in Augusta, Georgia that partners with athletic organizations to create a memorable sporting experience between military children and sports teams. These experiences include meet & greet time, facility tours, picture/autograph opportunities and more, strengthening the bridge between military families and various teams, resulting in Impactful Athlete Interactions! #TeamWork
