As Annabel Bowlen and her children were about to start their Walk to End Alzheimer event at City Park this morning, they chanted as one: one for Pat.

Team Super Bowlen raised nearly $70,000 for the Alzheimer Association today. Every Broncos player donated, as well as football operations boss John Elway, coach John Fox and several other team staffers. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and his family revealed in July that he is dealing with Alzheimer disease.

In the walk, Bowlen wife Annabel cut the ribbon before joining her family in the walk. Team chief executive officer Joe Ellis was also among the 8,000 plus participants.
