On Friday, Dec. 14, players and coaches from the Colorado Avalanche brought smiles and holiday cheer to some very special children when they made their annual holiday
visit to the Children’s Hospital.
Every December, the players and coaches visit the young patients at The Children’s Hospital in an effort to lift their spirits during the holiday season. Friday’s visit marked the 11th year of this Avalanche tradition, and was the team’s first visit to the new Children’s Hospital in Aurora.
The players and coaches spent time in patient rooms, distributed Avalanche teddy bears, signed autographs, took pictures with the children and their families and, most importantly, talked with the kids and helped bring them and their families joy for the holidays.
