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)
"We finally feel like we are back in the land of the living and are recovered from our Boulder adventure. While IronMan was an unbelievable experience again this year, our trip home included a very sick child, a dead car battery, #1's broken braces, and 11 1/2 hrs in the car. The day after arriving home greeted us with a 7:30am softball practice for #1, a doctor's visit for a sick #2, an orthodontist visit 45 minutes away for #1, and an optometrist visit 1 1/2 hrs away for little man in addition to unpacking and laundry. Now that I have my head back together, I want to say how so very thankful we are for all of our family and friends who have supported TEAM LARRY (both financially and through thoughts and prayers). Thanks to all of you, TEAM LARRY has managed to raise $35,000+ in about three years for ALS awareness and research. The amazing thing about this is this money is not large sums given by corporations. This money came in bits and pieces from friends and family of TEAM LARRY members. Thanks again! TEAM LARRY has big things planned for the year to come. Our WAR will continue. One day there will be an ALS survivor."
Thank you to all of you who participated in the Boulder Ironman event as members of TEAM LARRY. Thank you to all of you who sent pictures and texts and called letting this missing from action IronMomma (really like my new nickname) know how everyone was doing. I am sorry I wasn't able to be in two places at once. Gotta figure out how to do that. To the new members of the team, just know that even though we have not met, you each are a part of my heart. YOU are a part of something greater than this event. You ARE the fuel of ALS awareness! Your efforts will help to find the cure. God Bless you all!
