Team Larry's Fundraising Page..."so others may live."
Do it because you can and others can't. Do it for Les...our "alswarriorpoet-spirit"...Team Larry...Raising Awareness...Supporting Research...Seeking a Meaningful Treatment and Cure.
Team Larry will be competing as individuals and relay teams for Ironman Boulder 70.3 on June 13, 2015. Please support us by donating funds for research to honor Les "Larry" Dawson who passed away from ALS. We now race in his memory and to gain even more awareness. The team also has a new battle brewing. This past winter a friend's father, who is named Larry, was diagnosed with ALS. We will rally behind him, giving him strength and support while he fights this disease. The cure is out there, let's find it! Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (NIV)
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."
