NAME: MICHELLE COPOLO-ZIEMER
My name is Michelle Copolo-Ziemer. I reside in Buffalo, NY, and I am so excited to be running my very first Boilermaker with OMT16! I am a multi-marathoner and half marathoner, but have never tackled the 15k distance and I can’t wait to do so while championing this incredible organization! I was Jordan’s athletic trainer at St. Lawrence University (Go Saints!) and have watched in awe over the years as she created this amazing organization from scratch, and have been so inspired by the growth and impact of OMT16! In addition to being an athletic trainer, I am currently in nursing school at the University of Rochester, so I am so grateful to have the opportunity to run for POP’s, as I have seen first hand the impact that organizations like On My Team 16 have for oncology patients and their families! I am running for my patients, for all the healthcare providers out there, for my inspiration Gabe Grunewald #RunningOnHope and to bring hope to cancer patients and their families of all ages, especially VH!
