IRONMAN FOUNDATION AMBASSADORS

Overview

The IRONMAN Foundation Ambassadors are a group of triathletes who continually strive for positive change in IRONMAN race communities through service projects, fundraising initiatives, and athletic goodwill. These athletes exemplify the IRONMAN Foundation mission of service through sport and commitment to community. This group supports The IRONMAN Foundation's mission and staff by serving as a point of contact to current and potential IRONMAN Foundation Athletes. In return, ambassadors recieve special team benefits and goodwill knowing they leave their IRONMAN legacy behind long after race day!

The determination of an IRONMAN Athlete, along with the passion to rise above the masses, creates REAL change in IRONMAN communities. These are not your regular athletes. They are on a mission to change the world: one community, one organization, and one service project at a time.
