BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Oct 03, 2015
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I'm currently in the process of training for my first IRONMAN and have volunteered to raise money for the Ironman Foundation along the way. I need to get to $3,000 by the end of September in order to race, so any assistance that you could provide would be much appreciated!
For those who don't know, an IRONMAN is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run, all back-to-back. It's a pretty daunting feat, but I'm up for the challenge.
Here's some more information on the charity that I'm competing for:
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$29 million to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
