Jingle Bell Walk For The Hoover Family

Help Raise Funds for Local Family in Need

On Saturday, December 8 at 9 a.m., the Estes Park Mountain Shop along with Kind Coffee will be hosting a Jingle Bell Walk to raise funds for our neighbors, the Hoover family, who are coping with the recent news of Ryan, age 38, being diagnosed with Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Ryan was officially diagnosed in June, after two years of multiple doctors’ visits, scans and tests. There will be many upcoming expenses in order to get Ryan the best care possible as the disease continues to progress and his health deteriorates. While there is no cure for ALS, treatment can potentially slow down the progression of this horrific disease.

During this season of giving, let us come together as a community, and support this local family with an un-timed walk around Lake Estes. A $25 donation will grant you a bib number, but any denomination donation will be accepted. Donation can be made at both the Estes Park Mountain Shop and Kind Coffee, and 100% of donations will directly benefit Ryan. Additionally, bib numbers can be brought into Kind Coffee for a free drink.

Those walking the day of the event will meet at Estes Park Mountain Shop. Dogs and strollers welcome. Rain or shine, sleet or snow, we will walk for Ryan!
