One of the major goals of North America Sports is to contribute to the communities that host an Ironman event. To that end, the Ironman Community Fund was created in 2001; this fund allows Ironman to generate funds for community groups and non-profit organizations in each community that hosts an Ironman. The Ironman Community Fund contributes between $25,000 and $50,000 yearly to each race community to local non-profit groups with a focus of the grants being directed towards youth and sports.

    I know it’s for a good cause and all … but this has always seemed like just another IM money grab to me. I guess it’s good that there are people willing to pay the price they’re asking, though.
