KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.

KEEN USA is honored to announce that KEEN Phoenix was selected as the beneficiary of the IRONMAN Foundation Newton Running Tri Team at IRONMAN Arizona, a race (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) that was held in Tempe, AZ on Saturday, November 15th. $30,000 that was raised by athletes of this team in an effort to make an impact in the race community was donated to KEEN Phoenix. Additionally, IRONMAN partner, Newton Running, donated shoes to KEEN athletes. Thank you, IRONMAN and Newton Running! And thanks to John Snyder for your efforts on our behalf.

Prior to presenting the check, IRONMAN Athletes spent a couple of hours hanging out with KEEN Athletes. You can see highlights in the terrific video produced by the IRONMAN Foundation below.
