BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
For those of you who know me, you know Ironman has changed my life! Training for triathlons took me from ex-college-athlete to fit mom. More importantly, through Ironman I have had the privilege of working with some of the best volunteers in Louisville! Every aid station on the 140.3 mile race is covered by folks from a local non-profit, church or charity who are volunterering their time in the sun and heat not just to raise money for their causes, but to help people who are struggling to achieve their lifetime dream! These groups cheer us on, give us water when we are dehydrated, food when we are seeing double, and emotional support every step of the way. I have been honored to be a volunteer and help raise money through The Ironman Foundation for my church, Our Lady of Lourdes, and thrilled to be a competitor who has been supported by my family and fellow parishioners. This year I am competing not just to finish, but to give back to my community. Your contributions to the Ironman Foundation on my behalf will help Ironman fund our community projects, schools, churches and a myriad of other groups. Thank you for any amount you can contribute. This year I don't compete for Sheila -- I Tri for Louisville, the City 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 nearly
twenty nine million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
