Two Missions Go Head-to-Head for #SB50

It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without some friendly rivalry!

Our Denver Rescue Mission CEO has made a wager with the Charlotte Rescue Mission CEO out in Charlotte, North Carolina…

WHEN Denver WINS, the CEO of Charlotte Rescue Mission Tony Marciano has to do a video of himself doing a touchdown dance wearing a Peyton Manning jersey. If we lose, our CEO Brad Meuli will perform the dreaded “Newton dab” on the roof of Denver Rescue Mission while wearing a Cam Newton jersey.

“Each Rescue Mission works with people struggling with addiction, poverty and hopelessness” says Rev. Tony Marciano, CEO of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. “We work with our residents each day to build a foundation of sobriety in order to return them as contributing members of society. Part of what we teach them is that they can be clean and sober and don’t have to get “high” or “drunk” to have a good time. We are modeling in front of them the very behavior we want them to embrace – enjoy life clean and sober.”

Like Denver Rescue Mission, the Charlotte Rescue Mission has a long history of reaching out to the homeless and those battling addictions.

The other reason for this challenge is to highlight the strong working partnership between both Rescue Missions. “Even though Rescue Missions operate independently, these two missions have been partnering together since 1998, sharing best practices to positively impact the people coming to them  seeking help and hope from their life crisis,” says Brad Meuli President and CEO of Denver Rescue Mission. “This challenge highlights our strong partnership to help people move beyond the crisis of experiencing homelessness.”

Two Missions. One cause. One BIG GAME!
