IRONAID COVID-19 Support Fund - NYSIPP

Donate To This Campaign

IRONAID, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation, 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.

In 2020, the IRONAID program will expand to specifically focus on serving our communities in the wake of COVID-19.

This year, all athletes will have the opportunity to support IRONAID, including Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series® participants through Rock This Town®, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation and the charitable program for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series.

In times of need, dollars are the most helpful way to show support. IRONAID funds will be available for grant applications by health-related nonprofit organizations around the world. Organizations who fit the criteria are invited to apply for funding. 

Potential projects include:

  • Providing personal, protective equipment (PPE) and for supplies such as ventilators, CT/x-ray machines, etc.
  • Supporting programs in the areas of housing/homelessness, healthcare, nutrition/food support, mental health, domestic violence, care for seniors, etc.
  • Finding ways to support quarantined individuals.
  • Funding organizations that are working in areas with poor access to regular medical services.
  • Supporting groups that are focused on WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene).
  • Supporting the research into SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

OPERATION IRONAID FACE MASKS

We recognize that the immediate needs of communities will be different than those that will emerge in the months ahead. With a shortage of protective masks throughout the world, the IRONMAN Foundation has established Operation IRONAID Face Masks in partnership with Framebridge, a program that repurposes new race shirts into non-sterile face masks. Donations of sterile masks to be used as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment such as N95 masks) for first responders and hospitals may also be donated. Additionally, Framebridge is producing acrylic face shields. 

Please give what you can and to learn more, apply for grant funding or face masks and PPE, visit HERE.

Note that the donation platform uses USD as its currency and that donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent  permitted by law. The IRONMAN Foundation is a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with Federal Tax ID 65-1172979. You should consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine the exact tax advantages of your gift.
