OPERATION IRONAID FACE MASKS

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

Overview

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.

Masks will be provided to help keep at risk individuals safe.

Donations of acrylic face shields and sterile masks to be used as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment such as N95 masks) for first responders and hospitals may also be donated through the Operation IRONAID Face Masks program in partnership with Framebridge.

No, all shirts must be new, unused and less than one (1) year old.  This is because used or old fabric can be weakened decreasing the effectiveness of the face mask.
