ROCK THIS TOWN, THE CHARITABLE PROGRAM FOR THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MARATHON SERIES, LAUNCHES NASHVILLE TORNADO RELIEF EFFORT
Humanitarian Relief Effort funds to support local recovery efforts in response to the recent damage caused by tornadoes in middle Tennessee
Rock This Town®, a program of the IRONMAN®Foundation and the charitable program for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series® has launched a Humanitarian Relief Effort campaign to raise critical funds in response to the major damage caused by the tornadoes in middle Tennessee. Funds raised will support recovery efforts and service projects in the greater race community for the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll® Nashville Marathon & ½ Marathon taking place on April 25-26, 2020.
With community being a core pillar of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Rock This Town is dedicated to creating a positive impact across event city locations through grant funding and volunteerism. To support local relief efforts the IRONMAN Foundation has matched the $10,000 donation made by the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. to the Music City Inc. Foundation.
“We stand with the staff of The IRONMAN Group regional office in Nashville along with the local community and call upon our greater IRONMAN and Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series community to join us in helping bring assistance in this time of need,” said Sarah Hartmann, Executive Director of the IRONMAN Foundation. “The areas affected will require ongoing assistance and donations, and service projects will be critically important for their continued recovery efforts.”
In an effort to give back to the local Nashville community, Rock This Town will offer a hands-on Service Project Day taking place on Sunday, April 26 to assist the community with rebuilding. Additional information can be found at www.ironmanfoundation.org/relief.
To help raise funds for those in need, the IRONMAN Foundation has set up three ways to help with the Nashville Relief Effort:
DONATE – All donations will fund Rock This Town Humanitarian Relief Effort Grants awarded at the 2020 St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Marathon & ½ Marathon.
T-SHIRT SALES – 100% of the proceeds raised through the sale of a custom “Nashville Strong” Relief T-Shirt will go towards Rock This Town’s Humanitarian Relief Effort Grants.
VOLUNTEER – Register to volunteer and provide hands-on recovery assistance at the local service project planned for Sunday, April 26 in Nashville.
“We cannot thank the IRONMAN Foundation and Rock This Town enough,” said Butch Spyridon, President and CEO, Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “We have been partners on the marathon for more than 20 years, and their generosity is evidence of how deep the partnership is.”
