BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Team IMF 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
Since beginning my journey in the world of fitness I've taken on many challenges. It started with obstacle racing. 5-10k runs mixed with obstacles. Those were/are FUN! But I needed more. Next was a half marathon. Then 8 more of those. After that, it was the marathon. Something I thought to be the ultimate test of resiliency. I completed 3 of them. 1 of which on a trail. Now, I'm looking beyond what I once thought was impossible. My goal on a day-to-day basis is to choose the hardest possible challenge in my mind, and do whatever I can to win. 70.3 miles of swimming, cycling, and running is the next on my list, and I am doing whatever it takes to come out the other side hardened and smiling. I chose to raise money, as a way of saying thank you for the opportunity to do these things that I love.

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 over $34 million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
