Seattle Frontrunners Board of Directors
This is the 2016 - 2017 Board of Seattle Frontrunners elected by majority vote of the membership.
Danny Luong, President
While on the board, I hope to collaborate with local groups to fortify our visibility within the LGBTQ community in Seattle. I feel that my organizational skills coupled with a background in graphic design can help accomplish this. I’m excited to root us deeper in social media and create digital content that showcases both our sport as well as our spirit. I’ve seen repeatedly how this club changes lives for the better, and I cannot think of a better cause to stand by. Thank you for allowing me to serve as president for another year. I wholeheartedly appreciate the opportunity to further develop our club into a resource for our community.
Linda Baker, Vice President
This is my 10th year on the SFR Board and I’m happy to be serving as vice-prez with Danny again this year. I love this club and am happy to be able to contribute through being on the board, putting together the quarterly newsletter, helping with RWWP, potlucks and other special events. I particularly enjoy the wide variety of health and fitness minded people of all abilities, ages and life-experiences that make up our membership. I can say that as a board, we are all looking forward to making SFR the best ever!
Robb Haydon, Treasurer
It’s a pleasure to serve as the Treasurer for Seattle Frontrunners. In my second year I’m hoping to continue growing our organization along with the rest of the Board. I’ll be looking for new accounting software to track and report our finances. I would like to promote transparency of the organization by making more information available to members through the website. This year is also a good opportunity to get started on club merchandise which may help offset membership dues. We have had such a success in 2016. I’m thrilled to learn what 2017 has to offer.
Taylor Galusha, Secretary
Hello Frontrunners! I'm a new board members and can't wait to get to work! I've been a member for 2 years and look forward to many more. I run in Go Long and on Wednesdays. I was formerly a competitive runner in college but now you will find me running just so I can eat one more Oreo. Here is to another wonderful year in Frontrunners!
Jon Nicholson, Board Member
I have served on the SFR board for 20 years and am choosing to continue being a board member as I still feel I bring worthwhile experience to the board. The reason for our existence is evolving and I want to be part of the change that keeps SFR a relevant organization within the community. I am passionate about running and Seattle FR's and want us to remain one of the leading FR clubs in the world known for our caliber of runners but also for being welcoming to people of all abilities who have an interest in running/walking.
Patrick Wigren, Board Member
Raising awareness of Frontrunners in the Seattle LGBTQIA community is a priority for many on the board and certainly for me. Exercise and a connection with my community have helped me maintain my sobriety for over five years. Seattle Frontrunners provides a place to socialize and make connections all while positively focusing on health, both physical and mental.
