Aidan's Grandma Judy organized an online benefit in April for Charley's Fund that raised over $6000. Plans are underway to hold another in the fall. Stay tuned!
Mike Vanderhyde is a long-time friend, more like family really. He's always been athletic - a skier, a runner, a wind surfer. Over the past few years, he's channeled his athletic efforts into the triathalon, aiming for the "granddaddy" of them all - the Ironman in Kona.
Mike is a strong supporter of Charley's Fund. In addition to donating funds that are raised from his triathalons, he's also coaching others in the sport and donating those earnings to CF. Over the years, he's donated THOUSANDS of dollars to Charley's Fund.
On August 24, 2008 at the home of Mary and Larry Weeks (Also friends, but really family!) on Snoqualmie Ridge, Chef Matt Weeks and his three helpers (the two Kyles & Larry), put on a fantastic six-course gourmet dinner to raise money for Charley's Fund. Over $6000 was raised! Thanks to the chef, the "kitchen help," the hosts, and all who attended. (Note from the editor: "It wasn't a hardship to support CF with this incredible food and great company!")
