NAME: MELISSA TIBBITS
RACE: 15k

My name is Melissa Tibbits residing in Whitesboro, NY this will be my 9th year running the 15K Boilermaker and my 3rd year running it for OnMyTeam16’s charity bib. I’ve witnessed firsthand the amazing support that OMT16 provides to pediatric cancer patients and their families and am honored to be able to help give back. Watching my child’s strength and determination after he was diagnosed with Anaplastic Ganglioglioma gives me triple the strength to run this for him and all the other POPs out there. 💪

NAME: JORDAN ZAPISEK (SHERIDAN)
RACE: 15k

My name is Jordan Zapisek (Sheridan) and I am the Founder of On My Team16. I created On My Team16 after I witnessed my younger brother, Jack Sheridan, battle and beat Leukemia. I decided that this year, it was time for me to run alongside our AMAZING Boilermaker charity team, and support those children affected by cancer, that I work with every day. I am lucky enough to have recently become a mom, and that has only put into perspective what the parents of our POPs (pediatric oncology patients) go through on a daily basis. If I can make a difference by running 9.3 miles, I will do my best to do just that! Thank you to all those who have supported On My Team16 in the past and thank you in advance to all those who have the ability to support me in the 2022 Boilermaker Road Race!

NAME: KELLY BURKE
RACE: 15k

Hi, I’m Kelly, coming from New York City! I love running but what makes this race unique is I get to be alongside my friend (and founder of OMT16) Jordan! It has been so rewarding helping out with OMT16 events over the years and seeing the organization grow. Currently, I am a 10th-grade Chemistry teacher in the Bronx! I just graduated from Columbia Teachers College with a master’s in science education. I love to travel, cook, and explore the outdoors. I’m excited to run again this year and raise money for all those who are battling childhood cancer

NAME: MICHELLE COPOLO-ZIEMER
RACE: 15k

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!

RACE: 15k

Hi! My name is Carolyn Williamson and I live in Jamesville, NY. This will be only my second time running the Boilermaker and my first time running for the OnMyTeam16 charity. My experience with OMT16 has been running the annual Climb for Cancer event and I am excited to be running the Boilermaker to support this amazing organization. I am a mother of 3 teenagers and an entrepreneur. I have a love for running and excited to be participating in an in person race where the outcome is larger than crossing the finish line. So happy to use my joy of running to raise money for all those who are battling childhood cancer.
