From the Huron-Waterloo Pathways Initiative
We would like to introduce our January Volunteer of the Month, George Sedlak! George is new to HWPI, having volunteered for two events since November of 2019. Although he is new to us, he is not new to the B2B Trail. We look forward to seeing what impact George has as he continues to share his time with HWPI!
George lives in Dexter by way of the outskirts of Cleveland where he grew up exploring the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area and the local Metropark system. He is married to his high school crush after getting reacquainted at their 20th reunion. When he is not out on the B2B Trail, George works in the automotive industry with a background in mechanical engineering and product development.
An avid cyclist, George regularly logs over 10,000 miles a year on his bike. He formed a cycling team at his place of employment to compete in charity events and is even considering competing in this year’s Senior Olympics after participating as a volunteer last year. In addition to cycling, George is also a runner. He has run the world’s oldest annual marathon, Boston, multiple times. He has also volunteered for organizations like Girls on the Run to further support the running community.
George views volunteering for HWPI as a natural fit for his interests and experience. He sees it as a way to reinforce the importance of safety, especially as a cyclist. Thank you, George, for your enthusiasm and dedication to HWPI. Your support brings us closer to realizing the goal of expanding the safe, accessible trail networks that connect the communities of Washtenaw County and beyond.
