About the Foundation

The Zane Beadles Parade Foundation supports the journey of young people going through life-changing medical experiences. Founded in 2013 by former Denver Broncos offensive linemen and current Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Zane Beadles, the foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that creates new experiences for the pediatric cancer patients at Brent’s Place and patients suffering from spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries at Craig Hospital in Denver. In 2014, the foundation plans to expand its services to kids and youth in the Jacksonville area while continuing to work with its partners in Jacksonville FL, Denver CO,  and Salt Lake City UT.

Why Elephants

A unique characteristic of the foundation is its emblem, the elephant. Elephants represent good luck, protection, inspiration, power and strength. These qualities are also seen in many children as they overcome obstacles in their lives.

Zane believes that “life is about the journey, not the destination.” He will leave a footprint on your heart with his dedication and support.


Sponsorships and corporate partnerships are crucial to the success of the Zane Beadles Parade Foundation. Your organization can help us create life-changing experiences for kids in need. Visit our sponsorship page for more information on how to get your organization involved with the foundation.

Events for a cause

Currently, the Zane Beadles Parade Foundation hosts one annual event – the Cakes for Cancer Pancake Breakfast. Without this event and the generous support of our fans we wouldn’t be able to do all of the good we do.

Cakes for Cancer is our annual pancake breakfast held in the fall. Event highlights include a silent auction, white elephant auction, bouncing castle, cupcake decorating, DJ, pancake eating contest, food trucks, elephant cake walk, and autograph signings with several Denver Broncos players! Last year, Cakes for Cancer raised $20,000 to pay for cleaning supplies and fun activities for the families at Brent’s Place.
