WOMEN FOR TRI FUNDRAISING
To help fund our Triathlon Club Grants Women For Tri will utilize four IRONMAN World Championship slots. Read more below on how you can help support Women For Tri AND maybe even go to Kona!
Another great way to contribute to these grant funds is to go to IRONMANStore and purchase some Official Women For Tri merchandise, 100 percent of the net proceeds of these sales support our grants and scholarships as well.
Women For Tri Kona Ebay Auction
Each year, The IRONMAN Foundation offers slots to the IRONMAN World Championship through their IRONMAN World Championship Annual Kona Auction, facilitated by eBay. To date, this annual auction has raised more than two million dollars, and funds directly benefit The IRONMAN Foundation’s selected charities.
In 2017, The IRONMAN Foundation is auctioned off five slots, with the fifth slot’s proceeds going directly to Women For Tri’s triathlon club grant programs.
The winners of the IRONMAN World Championship Annual Kona Auction will receive:
• A bib to compete at The IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua, Kona
• Private athlete registration in Kona
• Three VIP packages
• Invitations to exclusive race-week functions
The World Championship slot benefiting Women For Tri will open in the spring. To learn more about this upcoming opportunity, click HERE.

Primary consideration will be given to the Applicant's demonstration of commitment to triathlon and her compelling story of personal and life experiences that have impacted her participation in triathlon. The candidate must also commit to raising or donating at least $25,000 to Women for Tri, a non-profit charitable initiative. The selected entrant will embody the spirit of Women for Tri through her life experiences and current participation in the sport of triathlon.
