Nancy Sellars Memorial Foundation U.A.
Nancy Sellars was a familiar face in the Midwest's endurance community. She competed in numerous triathlons (including four Ironman races), ultraruns (five 50K races and three 50-milers), XC ski events (five Birkebeiners) and century bike rides. She was also an avid volunteer, serving as merchandise captain for Milwaukee's Lakefront Marathon for the past several years.
Just two weeks after finishing Race Across America with Team Badger Bikers in 2008, Nancy was killed by a drunk driver while out on an evening bike ride. She was 48.
The Nancy Sellars Memorial Foundation U.A. was established to keep Nancy's memory alive and to have impact on causes that were significant to her. The foundation is an unincorporated, non-profit association dedicated to the enhancement of public trails and waterways in southeastern Wisconsin and the promotion of bicycle safety and the rights of cyclists. Most importantly, the foundation works to educate the public on the dangerous and wide-ranging impact of drunk driving. A mistake that takes the life of a friend, spouse, child, co-worker, parent or other loved one is a mistake that can often be prevented. The foundation works to help people recognize the need for the responsible use of alcohol.
