1969 Ford Bronco offered to help NFL player’s charity effort


Like the idea of owning a 1969 Ford Bronco but not quite ready to pay the high prices such vehicles are getting in the collector car marketplace? 

Well, for just a $10 donation, you get a chance to win a one-off ’69 Ford “Fuelie” Bronco by Gateway Bronco and also help support Eight-Seven & Running, an organization launched by Kansas City Chiefs football team tight end Travis Kelcie to help disadvantaged youth.

The program is being coordinated by Omaze, an online fundraising website.  A pair of Gateway Broncos were displayed recently at Monterey Car Week.

“With 87 & Running I’m all about making a tangible difference in the community, so we’re always looking for unique opportunities to raise money for very real things or experiences that actually change kids’ lives,” Kelce, who wears uniform No. 87, was quoted in the announcement. 

“Partnering with Omaze to raise awareness of that mission and give away a pretty dope Bronco in the process is totally our style.”

The program runs until September 30. For more information, visit the Omaze Bronco website.
