BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
I have been blessed to lead an active life and have always enjoyed challenging myself with endurance events--marathons, century rides, triathlons, multi-day backpacking trips, etc. I like to inspire others to lead an active life and am proud of all the people I have helped over the years to achive goals they never thought possible by embracing fitness as a lifestlye choice. My mantra of Get Up! Get Out!! Get Going!!! is about to be taken to another level. I also have always wanted to take on the challenge of a full Ironman triathlon. Why would i want to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles? In one simple word-- Because. But I want to take it one step further and use every mile to raise funds that will be put to use helping others. This is where I need your help. I set a goal of raising $4,000 that will be put back into the community for some very worthy causes.Your donation is 100% tax deductible and I pledge to train long and hard for this big challenge. Please take a moment to read more below about the Ironman Foundation and then make whatever donation you feel comfortable with, whether it is $1 per mile or 10 cents a mile, I am grateful for every dollar you can give.
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.
