People battling Alzheimer's disease find relief by playing croquet at Wash Park

Posted July 18

— A story you will only see on Denver7, the Jiminy Wicket foundation has partnered with the Denver Croquet Club to offer the game to people living with Alzheimer's disease. They play outdoors in the summer at Wash Park, and move indoors at St. John's Lutheran Church in the winter.

The Jiminy Wicket Foundation was founded 9 years ago by James Creasey. His father was suffering from Alzheimer's disease and James saw that playing croquet was one of the few things that made his dad smile. A wonderful story from Denver7 Sports Anchor Alison Mastrangelo.
