BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
Holly Cow!! I'm doing it....I'm all signed up for this years Ironman Arizona. 10 to 18 hours of training a week to have me ready to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run a full marathon of 26.2 miles. All within a 17 hour allowable time frame (although I'm aiming to complete it somewhere in the 14 hour range). Don't ask what's gotten into me...I don't know. But I do know this. Besides doing this for who knows what personal reasons, I've decided to use this event to raise money for a locally benificial charity. The charity that made most since to me was The Ironman Foundation. So I've signed on with their team and have commited to raising $3,000 for TEAM IMF!
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 Ironman 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.
Check out the video I've posted showing how the Ironman Foundation donated a grant of $30,000 last November to KEEN of Phoenix, an organization that provides a couple of hours a week of sports and athletic activities to mentally and physically challenged kids here in The Valley.
Please help with a donation of $25 or more. It's tax deductible. It's for a good cause. And it will help power me to the finish line of this wacky event!
