The bowling event allowed Broncos fans to enter a bowling tournament where they would compete and meet multiple including All-Pro safety Justin Simmons, Kareem Jackson, Surtain, etc. The main goal of the tournament and foundation is to raise money to help underprivileged kids and families.

“It means a lot to use my platform for the better and to shine a light on those in the community, the underprivileged,” Surtain said to The Denver Post. “That’s something that I’ve always wanted to do with my foundation makes it known that it’s for the people and for the betterment of the world. That’s the main reason for the event, to shine a light on the people that need support, need help with essential needs. That’s what I’m looking forward to, giving back to these people and building relationships with people.”

The two-time Pro Bowler also stated that multiple teammates, including Simmons and Dalton Risner, inspired him to start his foundation.

"I was inspired. You know obviously, Justin does fantastic work, Dalton, you know those guys do us right. They give back to the community in a positive way and positive aspect. That is something you look forward to its very inspirational to see because we do so many things on the field but the amount of work that we do off the field should be just as inspiring. That is what I look forward to," said Surtain.

This season, Surtain was one of the only bright spots for a struggling Denver Broncos team that had Super Bowl aspirations. He ended the 2022 season with 60 total tackles, 46 solo tackles, one forced fumble, and two interceptions. Surtain was also the number one shutdown corner on a top-five Broncos defense that went up against Davante Adams, Keenan Allen, and Mike Williams two times a year.

Surtain is setting an example for everyone in the NFL and will absolutely be in the running for next year's Defensive Player of the Year and Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
