WHAT IS THIS?
Help out a diabetic mountain biker and enter to win a carbon Blur LTc! What’s not to like about that?!?! For $5 a ticket (or 5 tickets for $20!), you will be entered into the drawing to win a 2011 Santa Cruz Carbon Blur LTc frame.
WHO IS DWIGHT FOLLIEN?
Dwight Follien is a good friend of many, active mountain biker and a Type One Brittle Diabetic for 42 years and counting. In 2009, Dwight became unemployed and lost all medical benefits. Due to increasing health complications from his unstable diabetes, Dwight is experiencing severe physical limitations that make it impossible for him to be employable. His family and friends have rallied around him to provide much needed financial assistance to help him with ongoing medical costs as well as daily living expenses due to the ‘loop holes’ he falls into in the Government’s healthcare and financial assistance programs (for more info on this visit his blog page). He needs an affordable and stable living situation that allows him time to get the proper medical assistance he requires to become employable again. This fundraising effort is a way of doing just that and he has a plan.
WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?
100% of the donations are going directly to assist in Dwight’s much-needed medical and housing needs. The proceeds of this raffle represent the turbo boost that will place Dwight in a stable, healthy environment for long-term improvement. Your involvement will directly and immediately positively impact his life.
HOW BADASS IS THE CARBON BLUR LTc?
Totally badass. Here’s what Santa Cruz Bikes has to say about their coveted trail bike:
Take our beloved Blur LT. Now, make the frame a pound lighter, several orders of magnitude stronger and stiffer, make it out of carbon fiber. Make the whole frame out of the stuff, and use a proprietary one piece molding process that ensures maximum strength and minimal weight. The result? The strongest bike we have ever built, bar none. It’s a nimble, fast climbing, flex-free, confidence inspiring, trail bombing demon of a bike. Build it up however you want – there are no weight restrictions or fork travel limits to worry about – then ride it hard as you dare.

I WANT IN. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
We will be planning and hosting a ride and afterparty in Santa Cruz on a date to be determined in August to announce the winner. We will gather at Seabright Brewery and hang out on the back patio for food and drinks. Stay tuned for more information about that. But for now, please use the link below to donate and purchase raffle tickets. Every $5 donation will represent one raffle ticket. We will select the winner in person, but you need not be present to win. We will notify the winner the Monday following the raffle drawing.
Thank you for participating and good luck!!!
The Friends of Dwight Follien
