BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
The sport of triathlon is a very personal and individual sport. The training and the actual race are physically done on your own. However, the sacrifice that is asked of people in your life and the communities that hold the race is equally as grueling as the task at hand for the athlete. I decided to go the route of fundraising for Ironman Arizona in Tempe in order to give back to the community that holds the event and to help the other athletes that aspire to change their lives through triathlon.

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.
