Elaine G. is our unofficial but unfailing team cheerleader. She is one of our most active fundraisers, volunteers, runners, and facebookers. And she always has a sparkling smile on her face. Elaine’s huge heart and selfless nature compel her to seek out those who seem down, discouraged or tired and offer them words of encouragement both on the trail and off.

If you hear an enthusiastic “kapooyah” being yelled, it’s likely Elaine giving someone a boost. She’s even been known to run miles with pom-poms in both hands.
