Broncos lend hands to WWII vets

COLORADO SPRINGS - Some big names on the Denver Broncos roster are lending a hand to help World War II veterans in our community, literally. Knowshon Moreno, Von Miller, Matt Prater, Mitch Unrein, Kevin Vickerson and Ring-of-Famer Randy Gradishar all had hand castings made for unique sculptures holding signed footballs.

They sculptures will be auctioned off next week to raise money for Honor Flights of Southern Colorado, the group that takes local WWII vets to Washington D.C. to see the national memorial.

"These are one of a kind castings," said Lana Fore, VP of Honor Flights of Southern Colorado. "What Honor Hands did was they destroyed the molds when they were done."

She estimates the sculptures are worth at least $1,000 a piece. The group needs to raise $40,000 to take their next flight.

The sculptures will be on display at a fundraiser the group is hosting this Sunday from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4051 at 430 E. Pikes Peak Avenue in downtown Colorado Springs. Admission is $10. 

The Honor Hands sculptures will be sold on Ebay beginning Monday December 16.
