Boomerang Boat Cruise

May 01, 2018

On May 18th, we will be holding a benefit boat cruise on the Boomerang Party Yacht in support of our campaign.  If your in the DC area, I encourage you to purchase a ticket and set sail with us for an evening of good times, great drinks, and stunning views of our glorious nation's capital as we leisurely cruise the Potomac for a few hours!  Open bar of course and tickets are only $75.  Boomerang is generously donating more than half of all ticket sales towards our cause, so we want to sell out the boat!  Bring friends!  Click the link below to buy tickets!

Crossfit and Party for LLS!

Apr 14, 2018

On May 12th, Crossfit 414 has generously donated their space to host a free workout for members and non-members alike starting at 9:30am.  Donations to my campaign are much appreciated, but not required.  If you've ever been interested in trying Crossfit, now is your chance!  The workout will be tailored to all skill levels, so you don't have to be an olympic gymnast or powerlifter to do the excercises.  Afterwards, we will cookout, have some beers, and play some Spikeball.  Hope to see you there and as always, thanks for your support!

Off to the Races!

Hey y'all!

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!  Today marks the official kickoff of my campaign for Man of the Year in Wisconsin (I know...  Give me a break, its for a good cause), benefiting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I'm doing this in honor of my cousin Andrew Ferrell who died of Leukemia back in 2001.  Since then, the survivor rates of those diagnosed with blood cancer have gone up significantly, no doubt in part from funds allocated by LLS towards research, patient advocacy, etc...  In fact, 78 cents of every dollar raised by LLS go towards research grants, patient services, advocacy, and education.  Needless to say, it's a worthy cause.

 

The Man/Woman of the Year event goes on for the next 10 weeks, culminating with a gala where the winners are announced on June 9th in Milwaukee (FYI, the winner raises the most money).  I'm in a friendly competition with 9 other candidates all vying to raise the most money possible.  I've assembled a great team so far to support/help me in the endeavor.  This is a team effort to the core and I thank everyone for their support.

 

Please consider donating to the campaign.  I appreciate your support!

Love,

D. A.

Welcome to Dario Icardi's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Man & Woman of the Year.

I have joined a team that is driven to find cures for blood cancer. Our team is working to raise as much as possible over the next 10 weeks. Every dollar we raise counts as one vote for my team's candidate. The candidate whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of "Man or Woman of the Year". 

 

As you know, though, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.

 

Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

 

We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!

 

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

 

Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

 

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

We are sorry donations are no longer being accepted for this participant for this event.
