The -blazeman in a rarely seen note, his "reflections" on ALS and where he was in his life at that time!!!

Dear Kevin, "Mackinnon"...First off, I want to apologize for not getting to you sooner. I want to Thank YOU for your time and effort spent with my Dad, the Vigorman, and the War on ALS. My days are now knowingly numbered and they too often suck... this WAR, is all I've got left in me. So the story goes...I began doing Triathlons back in 1985 and never looked back... to keep a long story short, Kona 2005 was a very bitter sweet day for me. I was a veteran Triathlete with a sub 10 hour Ironman in…See More

Team Blazeman

Team Blazeman is a nationwide team of multisport athletes who compete for a cause larger than themselves. Members of Team Blazeman, known as Blazeman Warriors, help carry out the mission of The Blazeman Foundation for ALS by raising awareness about ALS. As they train and race, Blazeman Warriors raise awareness and commit to attainable fundraising objectives to support cutting-edge scientific research to find the causes and a cure for ALS.

Blazeman Warriors keep the spirit of Jon Blais alive. They show others, and discover themselves, that failure is not an option and to never give up. For that reason, Blazeman Warriors achieve success and fulfillment in their multi-sport endeavors that they never dreamed possible. Blazeman Warriors commemorate Jon’s 2005 Ironman finish by rolling across the finish line to the cheers of spectators, a gesture that has come to symbolize the War on ALS.
