BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
My name is Anthony Esquivel. When I was 19 years old I was diagnosed with liver disease. I weighed 275 lbs and was given 5-10 years to live. Today, I'm 28, vegan, 160 lbs, a triathlete, and have beaten liver disease. The sport of triathlon has changed my life. I now plan on becoming an Ironman at Ironman AZ in November 2015.
In my journey to become an Ironman, I would like to also help others in the process by raising money for charities through Team IMF (Ironman Foundation). All money raised through the Team IMF program will benefit The IRONMAN Foundation, and specifically - the Community Fund Program. This program benefits those in the communities where IRONMAN events are held, by providing charitable support to a variety of local non-profit organizations that recognize citizens in need and provide support to the local community.
Within those communities, The IRONMAN Foundation will provide grant funding opportunities to non-profit organizations, while also working with community leaders to identify projects that will benefit the community and provide funding to support those initiatives. The IRONMAN Foundation has provided funding opportunities of nearly twenty nine million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
Your donation, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated. If you're not able to donate, please share so that way others you know may be able to donate.http://ironmanfoundation.org/programs/team-imf/
