Donate to Shannon Valerio


Shannon is a fixture in the Denver hockey community as a long time hockey player and an official photographer for the Denver University Pioneers hockey team. Tragically, Shannon’s husband Steven passed away last summer after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Shannon and Steven are both Native Americans and met at a pow wow in South Dakota years ago. Steven was very active in the Denver hockey community, both as a coach and a player including coaching the Denver University Women’s Club hockey team for a time.

After Steven’s passing, Shannon has been left with substantial bills including hospice care and funeral costs. She is making payments on these but they do overwhelm her.

Please join Dawg Nation in supporting Shannon by donating to the effort to assist her with these expenses and help her get her life back in order.
