Dennis's WaronALS Fundraising Page 2007-2011
So Others May Live
Black Diamond Half Ironman 2008
Welcome to my Fundraising page. I used this throughout 2008 while competing in (2) 1/2 Ironmans in 2008. In 2009, I raced 5 times in smaller races. After a year off I will be back in 2011 in full force. Please join me in the War on ALS. There is no known cure for this horrible disease that turns the human body into a slowly deteriorating prison. The War on ALS is a battle fought on all fronts through research, fundraising, and awareness. Thanks to everyone who has supported me for the last 3 years. Team Blazeman has raised over $600,000 since 2007 to fund a research grant at Northwestern and we are continuing to fight. Feel free to join me in this, and I'll see you at the races.
Total Donations Collected:$2,115.00
Goal: $2,000
$0 106% $2,000
Despite 22 million(plus) people dying from ALS since 1869, there remains still no meaningful treatment or cure for this disease. Jon and ALS patients everywhere are basically offered the same treatment options as Lou Gehrig in 1939. Without raising awareness and funding, ALS will not receive the research efforts necessary to find a cure and will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed with ALS...Join Jon, "fight the good fight"...Believe there will be a cure, and "others will live", bmom and bdad...jon's mom and dad.

"People do not follow titles, they follow courage. If you will just lead them onto the battlefield, they will follow you and so will I, unite us... unite the clans." - Braveheart

Blazeman Foundation for ALS Mission Statement:
1.) Raise awareness about ALS by leveraging the energy and compassion of the multi-sport community and
2.) Raise funds to "fund" research to find a cure for ALS. "so others may live."

"Since 1869, twenty one plus million people have suffered and then died from ALS." There have been no survivors.
"Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure" -blazeman. We strive to hear words not yet spoken, "I AM A ALS SURVIVOR."
