What a beautiful day to become an IRONMAN!
In Louisville, KY., we were greeted with perfect race day weather, southern hospitality, and an amazing group of IRONMAN Foundation Athletes that made it their top priority to Race For More this year at IRONMAN Louisville. With a race week Luncheon to kick-off the week full of fun events, TEAM IMF athletes were able to sit down with one another, and hear some amazing stories of courage, perserverance, and how they made a difference this year through their fundraising.
Even more importantly, these guys raised over $35,000 for our IRONMAN Race Communities. THAT. IS. AWESOME. To find out more about the IRONMAN Louisville Giveback, check out our 2016 IRONMAN Louisville Giveback story HERE.
TEAM IMF Athletes at IRONMAN Louisville are having a blast getting to know one another before race day, and share their passions for fundraising!
