  • Nancy with Team Alex is our #WAMRiderOfTheWeek. This will be her seventh-year riding in WAM. As a pediatric cardiologist at Beaumont, Nancy has had many opportunities to refer patients to Make-A-Wish® Michigan and they are never far from her thoughts while she’s riding. “It is such an honor to be able to nominate a child for a wish. I get to hear their dreams and watch them come alive. To be able to help grant wishes for them by raising money and awareness has been priceless. When I am riding and it is raining buckets with lightening and gusting winds, the familiar faces of my patients and what they go through really does enter my thoughts.” When it comes to training for the full 300-mile route, Nancy has the following advice, “It is all about "saddle time". Your legs will usually "show up" but it is the tush that gives out first. Don't sweat the miles, put in the time.” Wondering what has kept her motivated after six years of participating in Wish-A-Mile? Nancy stated, “it is the inspiration of the kids that kept pushing and pushing me. Team Alex just made it such an amazing experience. You truly become family with the other riders and I have formed lasting friendships. Alex's legacy was with me through my first year of training, the ride, and still is today.” To register for WAM or to donate visit #WAM30
