Mizel institute founder, Larry A. Mizel said, “John Elway, a longtime friend of the Mizel Institute, is truly deserving of the Community Enrichment Award,” Mizel added, “In addition to his legendary career with the Denver Broncos, John has been dedicated to giving back to our community in countless ways.
It is an honor for us to recognize John’s business leadership and his philanthropic spirit; he is a true role model and one of Denver’s most iconic heroes.”
Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock was the 2016 Community Enrichment Award winner. Past winners include, Denver Broncos owner, Pat Bowlen, and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.
