Encouraging inclusion and assistance
IRONMAN Brasil collaborates, since 2007, with welfare institutions through donations of money, food, and materials that can be used by them. More than R$ 550.000 was donated to institutions such as APAE in Florianópolis (Association of Parents and Friends of the Exceptional) and projects for the inclusion of people with disabilities; such as AFLODEF (Florianopolitan Association of Physically Disabled People), funding the purchase of more than 200 adapted wheelchairs.
Financial support and encouragement for the future of triathlon
Financially supports, since 2007, the Escolinha de Triathlon (Triathlon School) of the Federation of Triathlon of Santa Catarina, which serves an average of 50 athletes from 12 to 18 years old. This project provides opportunities for young people to enter the world of sports through swimming, cycling, and running, therefore forming competition teams and using the values of sportsmanship to train athletes and citizens.
Incentive of participation and donation of sports materials
Unlimited Sports also collaborates with beginning athletes, offering free registrations and discounts for sports projects such as the Fernanda Keller Institute, in Rio de Janeiro, and the Talentos do Capão (Talents from Capão) project, in São Paulo with support in registration and donation of sports materials collected during the athlete's check in of the TRIDAY Series circuits.
