The Community First Fox Cities Marathon Presented by Miron Construction is excited to announce Katie Halbach as the newest member to its Board of Directors.
Halbach currently serves as the communications and resource manager with Gold Cross Ambulance Service. She has held leadership roles in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) field for more than a decade and she has a strong community footprint, recognizing the importance of teamwork with other organizations.
“I was able to work the marathon in 2018 and saw firsthand how special the Community First Fox Cities Marathon event is to the entire Fox Cities community,” said Halbach. “For years I knew about the marathon, but seeing how all the pieces come together – the volunteers, different communities, sponsors, medical community and all the people that live along the route – it’s just the most amazing atmosphere and I knew I wanted to get more involved. I’m so excited to work with this amazing event and the unbelievably talented board of directors. Although it’s bittersweet with Steve leaving as he’s been an amazing mentor for me both personally and professionally.”
Halbach is replacing long-standing board member Steve Radich, who is retiring from the board of directors after 19 years.
“It has been a privilege to serve on the Fox Cities Marathon Board of Directors for nearly two decades and help coordinate the medical coverage for this wonderful community event,” explained Radich. “The Fox Cities Marathon presented by Miron Construction has created a unique opportunity by collectively bringing the Fox Cities health systems together to provide comprehensive medical coverage for all race participants. I believe Katie will only be able to improve upon the strides we’ve made as she takes on her responsibilities in this role.”
