Far more than just a professional football player, Dalton has always had a passion for helping others and making them smile. Raised in the small town of Wiggins, Colorado, his work on the family ranch and involvement in the lives of friends, his church, and community, molded Dalton into who he is today.
Even as a highly decorated collegiate and professional player for the Kansas State Wildcats and the Denver Broncos, Dalton is perhaps better known for his work off the field, through Special Olympics, Camp Hope, and his community work with area schools, hospitals, and children and families in the community. Dalton believes life is measured by the joy that you bring to others, not your own individual accomplishments.
As a foundation, we believe that the world needs more love and kindness, we need to stop what we are doing and think “how can I make someone’s day today”? There is no greater feeling than seeing the positive impact you make on someone’s life. A quote that we love to live by is as follows, ” You can measure the character of a man or woman by how they treat someone that can do nothing for them”. That’s why Dalton started RisnerUP.
