Welcome to Kurt Martinson's Personal Page
Welcome to my page!
For the 11th year I will be participating in the Black Woods Blizzard Tour. What is the Blackwoods Blizzard Tour you ask? It is a 3-day snowmobile ride. Day 1 is from Proctor to Vermillion, day 2 is from Vermillion to Two Harbors, and Day 3 is from Two Harbors back to Proctor. It designed to raise funds to support those with ALS in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and parts of Wisconsin.
Please sponsor me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people right here in our community affected by this disease.
How did I get involved...
No, I didn't have a family member with ALS nor did I even know anyone with the disease. I love snowmobiling and I was told about this event where we can ride for a cause. Ironically, I also helped open the first Blackwoods restaurant back in the early 1990's in Two Harbors. So, I signed up and was hooked! Thru this event I got to know people battling ALS and see what it does to them and their families. This has made me even more determined to do what I can to help.
Insurance often does not cover durable medical equipment. Never Surrender Inc helps to fund a loan pool that allows people to use equipment at no charge. Caregivers need a break. Your donation will help to pay for a skilled home care worker to care for with the person with ALS while their caregiver gets a well deserved break. People with ALS may need help speaking or controlling a TV, radio or light. Funds from the Black Wood Blizzard Tour provide funding for augmentative communication devices that speak for those in need and help control the television, radio, lights and more.
