Ryan Clady gives back to the community in a big way

Denver Broncos history

Ryan Clady, who suffered a torn ACL before the season, hasn’t been able to contribute much of anything on the field in 2015, but off the field, he’s making a big difference.

On Tuesday, the Sharon Kemp Clady Foundation, which is named after Clady’s late mother, held their second annual Ryan Clady Christmas for Shiloh House Kids.

Shiloh House, which Clady’s foundation has partnered with in each of the last two years, is a non-profit organization centered out of Littleton, CO, that “offers nurturing, therapeutic and educational services to empower youth and families to overcome the impact of abuse, neglect and trauma.”

In partnership with Red Robin and Target, Clady, along with teammate Evan Mathis, took the group of Shiloh House kids out to dinner before hitting the isles of Target for a Christmas shopping spree.

Target donated gifts for 10 of the individual Shiloh House kids, while the Sharon Kemp Clady foundation adopted five Shiloh House families, allowing them to fulfill their Christmas wishes.

Clady has been taking kids shopping for the last four years, but it was Mile High Sports Radio’s Alex Ramirez, from The Final Word (Sundays, 10a-12p), who got Clady in touch with Shiloh House last season. Shiloh House is the presenting sponsor of The Final Word, featuring Ramirez and Joe Rico, and has been an instrumental part of the show.

“Shiloh House is, without a doubt, the most rewarding sponsor we’ve ever had,” Ramirez said. “We believe in giving back, and Shiloh House allows us to help give these kids a voice. Our show wouldn’t exist without them.”
