This is 4 U, Daddy-O! Fundraising Page
Racing in memory and in honor..."so others may live"
Hi! Thanks for viewing my page. On October 11, 2014, I am determined to log roll across the finish line before midnight at The World Championship Kona Ironman! In 1997, my dad (Tom) died of ALS. It was undeniably horrific and hard to think about to this day. I was so glad to learn of Team Blazeman years later, though unfortunately we had to lose a warrior for it (Jon Blais, aka: The Blazeman). Their mission and commitment to finding a cure and bettering the lives of those living with Lou Gehrig's Disease as well as their caregivers is in line with my own. That's why I decided to become part of the team..."to never give up, so that others may live." I hope you'll join me in this fight (and believe me, it's one hell of a fight!) and donate what you can to help. Truly, any amount helps. Thank you so much for your thoughts, time and donation! :) Peace and love, Allysin
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."
