EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
Greetings and thank you for supporting the IMF on my behalf!
A little about me, I'm a 39 year old career firefighter. I've always been an active person and continually look for ways to challenge myself mentally and physically. I was a competive swimmer during my youth and college, challenges have always brought out the best in me! When I retired the ole' speedo and goggles I played around with several sprint triathlons. I loved it and always told myself I'd like the opportunity to compete in an Ironman 140.6 distance event.
As the years went by it seemed less and less like I would get that opportunity. Until I found IMF and the opportunity the Foundation offered, an Ironman was just out of reach for me. So, I'm greatfull for this opportunity to both represent IMF and myself. I appreciate and thank each of you who donate on my behalf in support of IMF and me and my goal to complete an Ironman 140.6!
Below you will find a brief explaination of Team IMF and how IMF uses the donations. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Thank you all in advance, Shane!
THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION wrote -
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.
