Other IROC Events

During the summer, IROC’s focus turns to hosting athletic events that are competitive as well as recreational for all ages and all skill levels. Events are designed to be popular locally but also to provide sufficient challenge to draw participants from all over the United States.  We are now drawing participants from 26 different states, 3 Canadian provinces, Great Britain and India.  These events are fundraisers for IROC’s groundbreaking and highly successful Healthy Changes Initiative for people suffering from chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease to attract and retain them in a long term program of regular exercise.
