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 a number of 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.
Nancy touched the lives of many through her athletic activities, work and volunteer efforts. She was a radiant soul with a wonderful sense of community.
To keep Nancy’s memory and spirit alive, InStep Physical Therapy & Running Center has created the Nancy Sellars Memorial Scholarship.
This scholarship will be awarded to local high school seniors who are involved in the “silent sports”, such as cycling, running, nordic skiing, triathlon, mountain biking, paddle sports and the like.
