I met my beautiful wife Claire, Dave’s stepdaughter, after graduating from the UW. In the years since, Claire and I have built a wonderful life and had two amazing children together. I feel extremely lucky to have had Dave in my children’s lives as well as my own, if only for a few short years. The impact he’s had on our family has been immeasurable. I had never known someone so well regarded and loved by an entire community.
I’ve been a Madison resident for the last decade, an avid distance runner, cyclist, and nordic skier since 15, and over the last 8 years, I’ve built my career in the field of early drug development. Personally, I couldn’t imagine a better way to promote the health of our community, honor Dave’s memory, and raise awareness for aplastic anemia than a race! I’ll see you at the starting line!
