BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
I am pleased to announce this this year I will be competing in IRONMAN Arizona on November 15, 2015. For those of you unfamiliar with an IRONMAN event, it is a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. It is typically regarded as the most challenging endurance event in the world.
I have been doing triathlon for about 5 years now. I completed my first Ironman in 2011 after losing 75 pounds and tranforming my life througn healthy eating and the support of others around me. I have been a triathlon coach for 3 years, lucky enough to give back to the sport that has given me so much. That is why I wanted to join Team IMF. With your help we can help a large amount of charities at once, including a few that hit very close to home. I have donated my entire race fee and would love your help in reaching my goal of $10,000. I will also donate a portion of the proceeds by giving back to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Thank you so much for your time, your support and your donation. Every dollar counts. I can't wait to cross the finish line on Novermber 15, 2015 - as an Ironman!
About The Ironman Foundation:
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.
