Like all great innovators, Dan paid a price for thinking differently. But it's never the people who "aim to please" that make a difference. It's always the men who stick their necks out and take risks that make the discoveries for future generations to remember. There's an old saying, "No one ever erected a monument to a committee." In other words, it's the individual who's important, the lone voice of reason and madness who breaks the rules and reassembles them in a way that makes it impossible for people to ever view things in quite the same way. Dan Duchaine is such an individual. It's irrelevant whether you think his contributions have been mostly positive or negative. He has forever changed bodybuilding.
This money will be directed toward research for people who suffer from Poly Cystic Kidney disease and I believe are tax deductible donations. I have opened the fun with $ of my own money. Please feel free to pass this email around to others who are not on my mailing list but may be interested in this info. If you have a web site, feel free to post this on your site and/or send it out to people on your own mailing lists. I will be contacting the magazines shortly with this info also. In all honesty, Dan would have made fun of me for setting up such a fund but I felt it was the best way to make sure he did not die in vain. I have to think if there were better treatment options for Poly Cystic kidney disease, the infamous guru would be with us today making trouble for years to come… Regards – Will Brink
