A Christian Faith-based Social Media Network for Everyone !!
The International Association of Black Triathletes (IABT) is the only International African American and Women Owned Non Profit Charitable organization in the multisport industry, headquartered in Baltimore, MD. IABT Multisport Racing is the only African American and Women Owned Multisport Racing Company in the country. IABT/IABT Multisport Racing organizations joint efforts serve as a pipeline of opportunity for all including adults, but especially black youth and those living in urban communities. IABT/IABT Multisport Racing joint goals remain to educate and to increase participation in the sport as well as provide opportunities to work in the multisport industry. The multisport industry has untapped possibilities for black youth and those living in urban communities.
The International Association of Black Triathletes (formerly known as “Black Triathletes – a Private FB Social Group) is a 501C3 non profit charitable organization founded in 2012, however in 2014 co-founders (Dr. Tekemia Dorsey, Keisha Ragoobir, Jeremy Gordon, and Alexandria Williams) decided to shift the Private Social Media Group into an organization. There was a need in the multisport industry for African Americans not being met and the goal was to assist in addressing these issues. In 2015, co-founder/Executive Director, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey wanted to enhance the organization’s focus and IABT established its non profit charitable status. Over the years, the organization’s co-founders have parted ways but Dorsey remained steadfast in the organization’s efforts in meeting and exceeding the mission and vision through partnerships, community programs, projects, and services. IABT was named one of 2017 Great Nonprofits TOP-RATED Nonprofits.
In 2017, IABT expanded its roots and launched its Sister Company, IABT Multisport Racing. IABT programs, projects and services were too much to house under one umbrella so the sporting side of the organization will now fall under IABT Multisport Racing. For the past two years, IABT’s CEO, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey serves as the only and current African American & FEMALE USA Triathlon Certified Race Director in the country.
In Summer 2017, Race Director Dorsey made History in Baltimore, MD by hosting the city’s first urban Youth TRI/DU & Splash N Dash Event and future events/clinics/training *coaching services will be held under the IABT Multisport Racing umbrella.
