Each year, a select group of athletes from around the world race on TEAM IMF to support the mission of the IRONMAN Foundation. Together, we share a passion to create positive tangible change in our race communities and prove that "Anything Is Possible."

This year, I am returning to race the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona with TEAM IMF and representing the IRONAID initiative which I founded in 2019.

IRONAID engages athletes in the healthcare industry who race IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events. The purpose of the program is to raise funds and awareness for health-related causes.

During the pandemic IRONAID gave back $450,000 to race communities to help battle the pandemic. In 2022, IRONAID will continue to bring healthcare athletes together and support the IRONMAN Foundation's efforts to provide health and wellness access to children and youth in our race communities by supporting local organizations that help get kids active and healthy.

Follow me and the IRONMAN Foundation's journey on social media to be inspired and see how your dollars help our kids stay healthy and active.

Since 2003, over $50 million has been provided through IRONMAN charitable giveback programs including the IRONMAN Foundation to more than 10,000 local, regional, national and global nonprofit initiatives. Through these partnerships, IRONMAN athletes are powerfully linked to the community and together we leave the IRONMAN legacy behind in our race communities long after race day. We #RaceForMore.
