Welcome to the Personal Page of Chance Haakonson
I hope this finds you well! 2020 has been challenging for everyone, including the folks afflicted with ALS and their families. Those living with ALS have had to be more diligent than ever this past year because of their high risk status. Because of this, it is more important than ever that we continue to raise money to combat this disease and to provide comfort and care to those afflicted with ALS.
This is why I am once again participating in the Black Woods Blizzard Tour, a 3-day snowmobile ride from Duluth to Tower, Minnesota and back that raises funds for the fight against ALS. I began riding in this event eight years ago to support another rider who had a father pass away from ALS.
Since then, however, this disease has struck close to home – twice. As many of you know, a coworker and friend of mine, Brian Warzecka, was diagnosed with ALS in 2015 and lost his battle in May of 2018. In addition, another friend, Mark Adelman, was also diagnosed with ALS last year. We ride for Brian, Mark and the many others that are facing the challenges of this disease.
The Black Woods Blizzard Tour has supported ALS for over 20 years with more than $10 million raised since the event’s inception. In 2020, we raised over $1.3 million on this ride! These funds greatly benefit individuals and families facing the challenges of this disease. I hope you will join me in making this year our biggest yet.
Please consider the difference you can make in the fight against ALS by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation to this important cause. My personal fundraising goal is $10,000, and with your support, I believe I can achieve it. You can make a donation on this site, or send your contribution to me at the address below.
