This accident is taking a very real toll on Todd and Alex’s financial situation. To help alleviate the financial burden on them while they focus on medical care and healing, Todd and Alex’s friends and family are planning several events of different types in the coming months. Please keep checking as there are a few more not listed here pending finalization of dates and venues. We hope you can attend as many of them as you can:
Oct 10 2009 – The Wall Closing with Todd!
Just over 1 year ago our wonderful community of artists and friends came together for the unveiling of The Wall in aid of Todd’s recovery. Todd was brought home (in a wheelchair) just a week later…. but he was unable to share the experience with all of you.
Now as the wall is preparing to (hopefully) be sold and/or relocated, we would like to take this “closing” as an opportunity to bring us all back together – this time with Todd there! We hope you can join us as we marvel at what love, commitment, and an amazing community can achieve! (SEE the invite). This will be a time for us to gather and share, at 2:30 we will have conversation about Todd’s recovery in the theater.
2513 Blanding Avenue
Alameda, CA 94501
We look forward to sharing this day/event with friend and fellow survivor Susan Joyce!
(We should play the Rocky Anthem as Susan and Todd enter!!!) don’t ya think?!
Maybe we should call it the Todd Unveiling/ Wall closing!!!!!!!
We look forward to seeing you there!

Jul 20 2008 – The Gear Wall Todd Blair Project
2513 Blanding Ave
Come take the opportunity to be a part of the creation of a unique piece of kinetic art sculpture benefitting our man Todd. Customize your very own aluminum gear made by SRL’s Mark Pauline to add to a wall designed by Greg Jones and built by Kevin Binkert, making a kinetic art sculpture of gears. There will be 25 gears at $500 each. The goal is to mount the gears on the Todd Blair Gear Wall. All proceeds will go toward Todd’s rehab which Robodock insurance has seemingly denied coverage for.
More information on how to help and details on the unveiling of the wall itself can be found on the official Todd Blair Gear Wall Project site.
