Think Christmas! As part of your gift giving this Holiday season, please consider a lasting gift to the Keenan Van Fund, that will benefit many ALS patients for years to come!
Dan Keenan "Paying it Forward" . . . . .
Dan dreams of bringing mobility to other ALS patients on the Western Slope of Colorado.
If you know Dan, you know laughter and great attitude. Dan's selfless nature is what is most memorable about him. Even with the challenges of having terminal A.L.S (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Dan has a consistent upbeat, positive attitude and a dream of helping others in Western Colorado stricken with this terminal disease.
Dan's dream is to "Pay it Forward", to others in need. Never thinking of himself first, but rather thinking of others who could benefit from a wheelchair van to assist in their daily lives. Dan and his team are working hard to raise money and make his dream come true.
Dan's legacy will live on in our community for decades to come.

The Keenan Van has been passed to Mark Iddings in Grand Junction, Colorado, on November 30, 2018, to assist with his daily life and wheelchair accessibility needs to make life easier.
The wheelchair accessible van requires annual licensing, insurance, tires and maintenance. If you would like to donate to help keep this "Pay It Forward" dream alive please consider a donation to Alpine Bank, with the information below, or online on our Donate Page.

Dan Keenan's dream of helping others stricken with A.L.S. will go on for many years!
Meet Mark Iddings of Grand Junction, CO
Please consider donating to the "Dans Vans", Hilltop Community Resources, 1331 Hermosa Ave, Grand Junction, CO 81506, ATTN: Barbara Brown
On November 30, 2018, Mark "bought" the Keenan Van for $1.00 from the Keenan Van Non-Profit Foundation. He is the ninth person to own it.
He can now get in a vehicle while he is in his wheelchair, and even sit in the front seat.
Mark is responsible for normal maintenance, like oil changes while the van is in his name, but he says it's a small price to pay for better mobility.
"This will be wonderful. I'll be able to see family and friends, on a regular basis, instead of just being at home the whole time pretty much. You know? Which I have been since I've been in a wheel chair," Iddings said.
