BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
I am pleased to announce this this year I will be competing the IRONMAN Arizona on November 15, 2015. For those of you unfamiliar with an IRONMAN event, it is a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. It is typically regarded as the most challenging endurance event in the world.
I have been doing triathlon for about 5 years now and I want to give myself the ultimate challenge by doing my first Ironman. I figure that in order to make this race special in every way possible, I wanted to give something back to the sport (hobby) that has given me so much in my life. That is why I wanted to join Team IMF and with your help we can help out a large amount of charities at once. I have donated my entire race fee and would love your help in getting to my goal !!!
THE 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.
