Join Team Blazeman
Jon Blais (August 30, 1971 – May 27, 2007), also known as Blazeman, was one of the most inspiring triathletes noted for his fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is the namesake of the Blazeman Foundation. Jon became the only individual with ALS to complete a full Ironman triathlon who once said that the meaning of life is to live life.
With the power and inspiration of Jon Blais by making clear to every human being that "Decision must be instant, and Commitment must be total", Jon became a powerful voice for ALS, using the sport he loved to help promote ALS awareness and fundraising to find a cure for this horrific disease.
You can find out more about his extraordinary life by visiting www.triathloninspires.com/jblaisstory.html and www.waronals.com, where athletes can join Team Blazeman to continue raising awareness and funds for ALS research and support for ALS patients. Thanks, Blazeman!#triathloninspires Jon "Blazeman" Blais
From a different side...when this quote is not an option..." like (One Arm Willie Stewart) so eloquently put it, "Sports makes me whole."
I first saw your incredible story while watching the 2005 Ironman. As an avid baseball history fan I consider Lou Gehrig one of the greatest because he was likely the first to give ALS a voice. Your voice has been much louder and stronger thank goodness. The words THANK YOU are not enough to express how you have opened eyes and minds about ALS and hopefully soon there will be a cure."
