Greenswell Events is a professional organization that provides event management services, timing and equipment for triathlon, running, and multisport events in Central Ohio and surrounding area. The Greenswell Foundation was established as a way for Greenswell to support health and wellness initiatives in Central Ohio and the surrounding communities. The vision of the Greenswell Foundation is to support a positive-lifestyle through philanthropy, volunteerism and grant making by supporting various athletic, community, education, health, human services and public benefit organizations in our event communities.
Greenswell hosts up to 50 events each year, many of them raising thousands of dollars for good causes. In 2019, the Greenswell Foundation donated over $40,000 to local charities and causes.
The Greenswell Foundation Gives Back to Nonprofit Organizations with a Volunteerism Component. To enhance the well-being of those in the communities where Greenswell events are held, the Greenswell Foundation provides an opportunity for event athletes to showcase charitable support to a variety of local non-profit organizations that recognize citizens in need and provide support to the local community. This is by far the most common donation mechanism. Within our Greenswell event communities, we offer a grant program to support organizations that have a volunteerism component.
Since its inception in 2011, triathlon has been distinctive in its inclusion of female only competitors. In keeping with the unique spirit of our sport, the Triathlon For Hope goal is to increase female participation, create awareness about early detection of breast cancer, and to donate event proceeds to the Stefanie Spielman Fund For Breast Cancer Research at Ohio State University’s James Comprehensive Cancer Center and Solove Research Institute. To date, the event has raised and donated greater than $18,000 to help fund research.
