Hello Friends & Family -
As you know, I have been doing Triathlons for the last 7 years. The only year I missed was when I tore ligaments in my ankle weeks before the ChesapeakeMan in Maryland (now Ironman Maryland). I finally have a chance to go back to that race.
This sport has given me so much that I have decided to give back by raising money for The Ironman Foundation or Team IMF.
While Ironman races have little environmental impact, one of the purposes of the Ironman Foundation is to leave the host community better off than before the race. Much like the United Way, the funds are directed to local charities. In the past the Ironman Foundation has supported organizations like The Boys and Girls Club, Angel Reach, Safe Kids Initiative, Environmental Learning for Kids, Youth Services, The Food Pantry, and the Education for Tomorrow Alliance.
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.
I know these are tough financial times. The minimum donation is $10 and I would appreciate any amount you can contribute.
