On Friday, May 12, The John Lynch Foundation held its 19th Annual Salute the Stars awards luncheon at Sports Authority Field. Sponsored by the Reiman Foundation in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado, the event recognizes student-athletes, including those with special needs, from around the state who excel in academics and athletics, as well as make an impact in their communities.
New Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph was this year’s keynote speaker and told students how success begins with service. He said “success should be measured in your happiness, not the world’s views.’’
The event awarded over $118,000 in scholarships this year and hosted more than 1,000 students from Denver public schools and surrounding school districts.
To date, the John Lynch Foundation has awarded $1.1 million in scholarships to over 169 student-athletes.
