Wahl English Channel Crossing
This summer, three young members of the Wahl family will attempt what has never been done before: to become the first team of tri-siblings to make the perilous 21 mile swim across the English Channel simultaneously. The Wahls hope to do more than land in the channel-crossing record books. Their aim is also to raise $50,000 for Alzheimer’s research. The siblings are driven to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of their grandparents, Jerry and Estelle who both died of the disease and an uncle who is currently living with dementia.The trio, Danielle, 20, Devin, 24, and Dustin Wahl, 18, are natives of Colorado Springs, and will set out on their quest on the morning of July 22, 2014.
Throughout our communities individuals are hosting events to fundraise for their Walk to End Alzheimer's teams. Proceeds from these third party events will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Previous third party events have included garage sales, wine tastings, a car wash, Wiffle Ball Tournaments, bake sales, silent auctions, etc.
You can also make a donation to a Walk to End Alzheimer's participant

This portrait of Santa Claus was painted by Elsie Jordan at an Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making art program. Elsie simply wrote “San” on the back as she could not remember her subject’s name. These holiday cards are in loving memory of Elsie and John Jordan, both of whom succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease in recent years. These holiday cards are available by the dozen for a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Each year, Matt Bliss creates Memory Trees in honor of his grandfather, Lawrence “Bud” Stoeker, who passed from Alzheimer’s disease. Bud spent the majority of his professional life building A-frame houses across the Rocky Mountains. One year for Christmas, when money was tight, he “created” the family Christmas tree and thus the Memory Tree was born. The price is $850, of which $350 will be donated to the Association.
