Harvey's record floodwaters devastated much of southeast Texas. Irma's record-breaking hurricane winds and rain have destroyed the homes and lives of thousands in Florida. And Hurricane Maria has hit Puerto Rico just two weeks after Irma, causing devastating, mind-boggling damage. Recovery will take years.
It is the mission of The IRONMAN Foundation, the charitable arm of IRONMAN and Rock ‘n’ Roll running events, to create positive tangible impact in our race communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We’re calling upon our athlete community to support our Humanitarian Hurricane Relief Efforts, especially in our race communities. In times of disaster, dollars are the most helpful way to show support.
Funds raised will support local recovery efforts and service projects. The IRONMAN Foundation will match all donations made by September 30, 2017, up to $10,000. In support of these relief efforts, USA Triathlon and the USA Triathlon Foundation will combine to match an additional $10,000 in donations that are made by September 30 in the name of USA Triathlon. Please give what you can and to learn about volunteer opportunities and how to purchase Humanitarian Harvey Relief Effort apparel, visit www.ironmanfoundation.org/relief
