John played collegiate football at Penn State and has remained active in many sports, most recently triathlon. This past season he completed his first Ironman! We were very lucky to have John as a coach this season due to some free time he had between jobs. He is dedicated to the kids and to physical fitness. He is the only potential board member without any kids in the program, which will offer a unique perspective. John is a talented artist who has donated a great deal of time already to the team in updating the AERO logo, designing the cycling kits and updating the trust design this past season.

As an elite group parent, she is familiar with the more competitive side of the team, but is also dedicated to the overall mission of the organization. Wende has dedicated much of her life to the welfare of children, and her passion for children in the broader community is an asset to the board.
Michael runs a business consulting firm and is the parent of competitive group athletes. Michael’s experience starting his own business as well as his web design and consulting skills will make him a valuable advisor. Having kids who have been involved with AERO and who have participated first at the developmental level and then at the competitive level gives him a broad perspective of how the organization has developed over time.
