MEET SOME OF OUR RACING TEAM MEMBERS
Ultra Runner going for 314 miles
Frank will be competing in the Vol State Road Race, which is a 500K, self-supported event across three states in the middle of July. Why? “Because it’s there, but to actually complete this nightmare of an event, I’m going to need some motivation.” That’s where The Dream Factory comes into play. Frank approached us about joining The Dream Factory Racing Team as a way to give back to the community, and for that needed boost of motivation. “And maybe put a smile on as many faces as I can through my struggles,” he said. Frank is an outdoor enthusiast who runs the roads and trails around Louisville during early morning hours, nights and weekends. He said he started running three years ago and fell in love with it, culminating with a 100-miler finish in November. This will be his first attempt at an event this long.

Cycle across the United States
Yes, that’s the kind you pedal! Kevin will start his 3,100-mile journey in San Diego, California in March with the final destination being St. Augustine, Florida. The plan: 85 miles per day and six weeks to complete, passing through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Kevin is riding with a guy from Texas who is raising money for M.S. “It’s one of those bucket-list things,” the 48-year-old said. “It’s less about the bike and more about the journey.” Visit Kevin’s donation page at www.active.com/donate/dreamfactoryrunners/kevinxcbike.
Return to Boston after the bombings
Amy had already finished her 26.2-mile race on Boylston Street, had already snapped and uploaded a picture to Facebook, and had already made her way to the hotel room before tragedy struck at the Boston Marathon last April. It was a day she’ll never forget! But as soon as registration opened to enter this year’s race, Amy signed up and is ecstatic to be going back again. She will be lining up with thousands of others who are eager to not allow last year’s events slow them down. The race is scheduled for April 21 and Amy will be representing The Dream Factory!!!
