Through the IRONMAN®'s KONA INSPIRED program seven athletes have been given the once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in the 2013 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
The winning athletes were chosen amongst hundreds of Kona Inspired hopefuls who uploaded their videos explaining why they wanted to win the entries into the historical event. The winners were decided based on views and votes on the Kona Inspired website or through the Kona Inspired Facebook App.
Through this program The IRONMAN Foundation has provided the chance for these athletes to make their journey to the IRONMAN World Championship, a race for a cause. This fundraising outlet will allow these Kona Inspired athletes the chance to fundraise for a cause they are passionate about. The athletes have chosen their charity and will fundraise to support that charity's mission.
The IRONMAN Foundation will match the TOP FUNDRAISER for this program, up to $10,000.
