The International Association of Black Triathletes (formerly known as Black Triathletes – a Private Social Group) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit 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 it’s 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 2018 Great Nonprofits TOP-RATED Nonprofits.
