April – July 2014
Join Radiate Live for the largest home and recreation expo on the Western Slope April 25th – 27th. The Western Slope Home & Recreation Expo will be expanding for 2014 to include recreation that is a perfect fit for the mountain lifestyle. Attendees will still be able to find everything needed for home remodeling, additions, new home buying and more. But this year, they can also shop RVs, campers, 4-wheelers and outdoor equipment. In addition, every attendee will get the chance to enter to win our incredible sponsor giveaways!
Anyone interested in building, remodeling, decorating, gardening, improving energy efficiency, and simple upkeep of their current home should attend this newly expanded event. Plus, anyone interested in recreational activities in Colorado will love the new expo additions! There will be a suggested donation of $5 per person upon entry to the show. Proceeds from the door will be donated to a local non profit.
The show will be held at the 55,000 square foot indoor Eagle River Center at the Eagle Fairgrounds, with plenty of free parking. The Eagle River Center is the largest exhibition center on the Western Slope and is a central location for anyone from Summit County to Pitkin County and everywhere in between!

1st Annual ALS Fundraiser – June 7, 2014 in Hayden, CO
This event is organized by Wes Dearborn and Diane Heavey.
What is ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s disease)? ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. People with ALS lose the ability to stand, walk, or use their hands and arms. In the later stages of the disease, individuals have difficulty breathing as the muscles of their respiratory system weaken. On average, people with ALS die from respiratory failure within 30 months from the onset of symptoms. There are 30,000 people living with ALS in the United States and more than 350,000 worldwide. There is no effective treatment or cure. Diane Heavey’s father, Lenny, died nine years ago of ALS and she works as a CNA with local ALS patients. It has fueled her passion for finding a cure.
Proceeds this year will go to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI), the world’s most advanced research center focused exclusively on solving the ALS crisis. It is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and the only independent ALS organization that both raises its own funds and directs its own research. Because they run research studies on all facets of ALS, their findings can be applied to many other neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Finding a cure for one could be a breakthrough for other fields. For more information, go to http://www.als.net/
