Inaugural Hayden's Hero Award
Hayden Lee, known as “Hadie” to those close to him, was the definition of a Warrior. Hayden spent most of his life in constant pain because of Blau’s Syndrome, though people around him were typically unaware because Hayden was seldom to complain. He was a kind and happy child who enriched the lives of those who had the pleasure of knowing him with his boisterous, larger-than-life personality, mischievous smile, creative jokes and contagious laugh. He was the kid who turned a gathering into a party. Hayden loved being in first grade at Frisco Elementary School and was proud of becoming a good reader. He enjoyed Taekwondo, snowmobiling, building Legos, playing with countless friends and most of all, playing with his beloved big brother Henry.
Warrior of the Year
"Former Newscaster. Advocate. Warrior. Family Man."
These are just some of the words that describe Gregg Moss, a fixture of the Denver news community. For almost 35 years, Gregg has called Denver his home. It was during his stint at KUSA-Channel 9 that Gregg was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. As hard as the diagnosis was to endure, Gregg took the path of getting involved with the local Arthritis Foundation to ensure he and those battling this disease would have hope. Gregg immersed himself into the Walk to Cure Arthritis and served on the Local Leadership Board. Gregg also used his influence to educate the community on the impact of juvenile arthritis through PSA’s. Gregg continues the fight with his disease today but with an incredible spirit and positive attitude. Gregg is the definition of a true Warrior!
