Team Spirit

One of my newest projects with the Greater Washington Sports Alliance is the promotion of our Team Spirit program. We promote, support, and fundraise for local Olympic hopefuls. I mean, I know I’m not going to get to Beijing anytime soon, but lets definitely send lots of hometown folks to cheer for!!

Currently, there are two members of Team Spirit, Margie Shapiro (Triathlon) and Kristen Allan (Judo). We held a fundraiser for Kristen Tuesday night at Landini Brothers Restaurant in Old Towne Alexandria.

The turnout was fantastic, the venue wonderful (even more so because of Franco Landini’s generosity) and we raised a good start for Kristen. And I’m not just saying that because she could flip me over and drop me to the ground with little effort!

Go Team USA!!
