IRONAID

Overview

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 2021, the IRONAID program will 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 Running Series® participants through Rock This Town®, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation and the charitable program for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series.

IRONAID funds will be available for grant applications by health-related nonprofit organizations around the world. Organizations that fit the criteria are invited to apply for funding.
