BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
As if I don't have enough going on; I have previously run 26.2 miles (5x now), biked 185 miles (3x) and swam a grand total of 25 minutes in the shallow end of my neighbor's pool. Technically the last was standing and splashing, but whatever... Now I am challenging myself to put it all together with an IRONMAN of 140.6 miles on water, bike and foot. Not only am I excited to conquer (read survive) this great event, I am also happy to train for and support an organization that gives back to the local Arizona community where the race is taking place. I would be ever so grateful if you would help me get to my goal by donating on my behalf to the IRONMAN Foundation. You can read about it below and give as you see fit :).
P.S. This is all tax deductable so don't be cheap! ;)
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.
