In Blazeman Warrior Debra Saltz's words...Thank you Deb..."In August I will accomplish my goal of running a marathon in every state. But ALS does not yet have a cure. I will keep running to raise money for valuable research. Many of you know I have been involved with this organization for several years. If you are interested in why you can use this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnx-_IqIHfQ to hear about Jon Blais' legacy, and to see why I race for this amazing organization. Jon's wish was to find a cure for this devastating illness. I will continue to do my small part in raising awareness through racing in his memory. Please consider a donation to this very worthy cause. Every little bit helps. As always, I will continue racing for those who can't, for the War On ALS, and So Others May Live! ......."as we strive to hear words that have yet to be spoken, "I AM AN ALS SURVIVOR"...FREEDOM...(from ALS)."
"I've been donating money each time Debra Saltz completes another marathon in another state. After today's successful marathon in Wyoming, Deb has only six states left. I've upped the ante and have so much faith in and admiration for Deb, that I'm paying for all seven states at once. Thanks Deb for introducing me to this wonderful organization. So others may live." (Nancy).
Thank you Deb...Without raising awareness and funding, ALS will not receive the research efforts necessary to find a meaningful treatment and cure, and ALS will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed. To date there are no survivors... "Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure"..."so others may live"..."the -blazeman", (alswarriorpoet-spirit).
State number 39 - Cow Town Marathon, Ft. Worth, Texas. Perfect weather. Got to run with friends which always makes it better. As always running for those who can't. I know they would do it for me. So others may live.
