That is our goal. That is the single reason the Blazeman Foundation exists. And it is with that goal in mind that we are extremely proud to announce our renewed commitment to the research that is working to find the cure...so others may live.

I log-rolled my first 10k on 10-11-09 at the Race for the Taste at Disney World. OK, so it's not an Ironman or even a sprint distance triathlon. For a lot of you it's not even a good warm-up run. For me it was my first race and my first run as a Blazeman Warrior.
