Hurricane Michael is the strongest storm to ever hit the Florida panhandle.
Hurricane Florence’s floodwaters have devastated Carolina communities and displaced thousands of families.
The lower eastern side of the Island of Hawai`i has suffered multiple natural disasters, including the largest earthquake to hit the region in over four decades as well as volcanic eruption, and lava flows which have reached over 100 acres of land. Homes have been destroyed and displaced over a thousand residents.
In 2017, the Tubbs wildfires in Northern California were one of the most destructive in the state’s history. Harvey’s record floodwaters devastated much of southeast Texas. Irma’s record-breaking hurricane winds and rain destroyed the homes and lives of thousands in Florida. And Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico just two weeks after Irma, causing devastating, mind-boggling damage.
Recovery from these events 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 grant funding and volunteerism. We’re calling upon our IRONMAN community to support our Humanitarian 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 has pledged $50,000 for Hurricane Michael Relief and will match all donations made by November 5, 2018 up to $100,000.
