Bringing the Love to Alberta!

March 17, 2024
Wow, what an incredible trip to Edmonton! So many highlights but for me helping another beautiful family takes the cake! Mike and Leah Stelter lost their incredible little Benny to brain cancer in 2022 and now Mike is battling sarcoma (bone cancer). Despite all those challenges, this amazing couple inspires those around them by taking on every day with determination and positivity. Yesterday I …

Hockey is for EVERYONE!

March 3, 2024
Took a little break from the tax desk tonight to share the ice with the Colorado Golden Eagles, a group of special needs kids and adults that that were born with varying degrees of cognitive challenges. The smiles were in abundance as Brett, Ethan, Tanner, Eli, Sean, and others showed us all what playing for the joy of the game looks like! Special thanks to Rei Martinez for the invite and Mike …

Jack is in the House!

February 28, 2024
My favorite part of the Avs games is running into families that have touched my life. Last night I heard my name and turned to see a “not so little” Jack Rodell. I met Jack in 2019 shortly after the Rodell family was hit with the devastating news that their little fella was diagnosed with leukemia. Over the years we (Jack and I) have taken a pic when we run into each other and last night was…

Humboldt Embrace

February 25, 2024
Wrapping up a whirlwind trip to the great white north! There were cheers, there were tears and there were incredible memories made. Nearly six years ago, a chain of “no coincidences” began a deep connection to the amazing Humboldt community. That community has embraced me way beyond my wildest dreams and given me way more than I have given them. Each trip to Humboldt is emotional, but also uniq…

Go Spurs!

February 14, 2024
Just when I thought it was over, I got one of the coolest birthday gifts ever! My dear friend, Dave Carr surprised me this morning with this epic Denver Spurs jersey! Honestly already my all-time favorite hockey sweater!! My very first live hockey game was the Denver Spurs vs the Salt Lake City Golden Eagles in 1973. I was absolutely obsessed with the Spurs and would listen to all their game…

One Lucky Guy!

February 13, 2024
“Thank you” doesn’t seem quite enough as I felt more love over the last week than one guy deserves! Surprise party, emotional speeches, tons of cards, a benefit skate, donations to Dawg Nation, endless phone calls, a trip to Florida, rink side seats for the Avs, precious time with dear friends, literally hundreds of well wishes, an amazing custom book with heartfelt notes, driveway plowed wh…

Congrats Lucas

February 9, 2024
A fun night out celebrating Lucas Vialpando. Born with cerebral palsy, Lucas never feels sorry for himself and faces every day with determination, energy and a “can do” attitude! Super proud of this fellow MSU Roadrunner who has parlayed his criminal justice degree into the beginning of what will likely be a long career in serving his country as part of the federal government. Lucas, we are ble…

One for the Ages!

Pretty special night for one of the luckiest guys I know! My Cindy pulled off a complete surprise as what I thought was a dinner with friends turned out to be a surprise birthday party a week early! There were a lot of moving parts, and my gal orchestrated a perfect night of friends and family. Everything was amazing but what I’ll remember most are the beautiful words that brought tears to my e…

A HUGE thank you to Keith Jones, Joe Marsh and the Philadelphia Flyers organization for going waaaay above and beyond in making today so special. Catered suite, personal visit from Jonsey, video tribute on the Jumbotron, and a day full of making us feel like royalty! It was a jammed packed weekend that included so many highlights as we did our very best to honor a hero to our family named Se…

Sled Hockey Anyone?

January 14, 2024
It was a memorable night at the Sports Stable as I joined a few of the Hockey Heals crew on the ice for sled hockey game against a team of firefighters. I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone, but loved every minute of it, especially sharing the ice with my pal Ashton Stephenson. Ashton has had a really rough patch over the last month, and it was important to get him back on the ice and en…
