Peyton Manning Delivers Keynote Address at the Boy Scouts 38th Annual Sports Breakfast on April 16, 2014 at the Pepsi Center
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning delivered the keynote address at the 38th Annual Boy Scouts of America Sports Breakfast presented by USBank Wednesday morning on April 16th. The Annual Sports Breakfast is Denver’s Premier Business and Sports Networking event with over 1,200 attendees including local business leaders and sports personalities.
Trustworthy, loyal, brave and helpful. These are all attributes called upon in the Boy Scouts of America’s Scout Law. They are also, coincidentally, words that many Broncos fans would use to describe quarterback Peyton Manning. Speaking publicly for the first time since the Super Bowl, Manning took to the Pepsi Center podium as the Keynote Speaker at Monday’s 38th Annual Sports Breakfast, benefitting The Boy Scouts Denver Area Council.
Although Manning admitted that he never was a Boy Scout himself, the principles that they teach are the same ones he uses as a leader on the football field.
“I don’t know of any time in my life when the Boy Scouts focus on values and building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society is as needed as it is today” Manning said during his speech.
Manning was not the only Colorado sports face in the crowd. Local personalities in attendance included: Susie Wargin, Vic Lombardi, Lionel Bienvenu, Walter Davis, George Karl, Linda Lappe and many more.
In addition to having Peyton Manning as the Keynote speaker, other sports personality, sport managers, administrators, coaches and athletes from surrounding professional and amateur teams attend this special function. The purpose of the Sports Breakfast is to raise funds to support the operations of the Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.
