Join us at IRONMAN 70.3 Puerto Rico on March 17, 2019 and provide hands-on rebuilding support the day after the race. On Monday, March 18, 2019 we will continue recovery efforts in Puerto Rico with a Community Revitalization Volunteer Day. Participation is open to volunteers of all skill levels, ages 10 and up. Transportation, event t-shirt, community luncheon, and equipment are included.

The race takes place in San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico. While the Island still works to recover from Hurricane Maria, the beautiful race course is completely ready for race day and San Juan is open for business. Your visit goes a long way for the economic recovery of the Island.

OUR 2018 PROJECT: Turning Houses into Homes with the Buena Vibra Foundation.
In 2018, the IRONMAN Foundation provided more than $120,000 in grant funding to five local nonprofits to support Hurricane Maria recovery efforts and more than 100 athletes and volunteers participated in a rebuilding project the day after IRONMAN 70.3 Puerto Rico, helping to revitalize the homes and community of Barrio Ingenio, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Grant funding supported the Buena Vibra Foundation’s ongoing roof reconstruction work, and IRONMAN Foundation volunteers were transported to Barrio Ingenio for a Community Revitalization Volunteer Day. Working as teams in collaboration with community residents and leaders, volunteers cleared debris, painted and cleaned several homes. Together we were able to create a long-term, lasting impact and assist with the emotional revitalization of the community by turning their post-hurricane shelters back into a vibrant community of homes.
