ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
Thank You for taking the time to look at my fundraising page! I am so excited to have the opportunity to raise funds for some amazing non-profit groups during my journey to become a Two-Time Ironman! WooHoo!!
The thought of attempting an Ironman race never occurred to me until one of my daughters signed up, trained and became an Ironman in 2012. I was in awe of her discipline and amazed at the truly wonderful friends she gained during her training. Cheering all day for her during her race was such a great, inspiring experience. Still, I never thought I would tackle such an event. But then I retired and decided Why Not? She accompanied me on my first bike ride clipping in and started helping me learn how to swim more than one lap at a time! lol Thus began my Ironman journey.
I had such a great experience during my first Ironman race at Ironman Arizona 2014 that I just HAD to sign up for it again. Being part of The IRONMAN Foundation will make this an even more rewarding experience.
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. Some of the groups that will benefit from your generous donation include Youth Athletics, Challenged Athletes Foundataion, Youth Education and Additional Youth Programs.
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 29 million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
All donations are tax deductible! Please help me reach my fundraising goal so we can keep our non-profit organizations at work! Any dollar amount will be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!
