BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: May 16, 2015
My name is Thomas Walls, AKA Rockstar Athlete, I recently completed Ironman Florida and now I find myself training for Ironman Texas. Those of you who know me know that I’ve always strived to make my athletic achievements meaningful. Certainly every event I’ve participated in from 5K runs, Marathons and Ironman events have all meant something to me but knowing that I can make a difference in other individual lives has always been a motivating factor. My first fundraiser raised over $1,000 for Children’s Hospitals and two years ago I raised close to $2,000 for team Livestrong. This time around I am raising the bar by joining TEAM IMF and am committed to raising $3,000.
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.
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.
Please join me and TEAM IMF and together lets make a difference! Also follow my training and progress at https://www.facebook.com/RockstarAthlete!
