The Av for a Day program was created to shine a spotlight on incredible kids in the community who demonstrate perseverance, a positive attitude, and resiliency.

Candidates are chosen by their ability to inspire others, as well as their efforts to demonstrate a positive attitude facing hardships, remarkable commitment to improve their community, or extraordinary dedication to academics.

Last year, 6 kids were chosen to be an Av for a day and "spent the day attending morning skate, meeting some of the players (as approved by the NHL's COVID-19 Protocol) and then taking in the full experience of attending an Avalanche game at Ball Arena with their families."
