Walker Wednesday: Meet Lauren

Lauren Rickels is very excited about doing her first 3-Day this year! She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology from the University of Tennessee. She and Ryan have been married for 7 years and are parents to 2 boys, Zach (3) and Austin (11 months). 

Lauren is currently staying home with her boys and loving it! She has a double stroller that allows her to take the boys on training walks. Zach even gets out and runs beside her sometimes!  Austin just took his first step - he'll be walking with Mommy in no time. She is a Pampered Chef Consultant and loves scuba diving, traveling and sports.  

Lauren did The Race for the Cure a few years ago. She and Joyce play bunco together, and when she first heard about the 3 Day last year she thought it was an amazing thing to do. It has been in the back of her mind that she would love to do something like that, so when Joyce told her that Music City Spirit was walking in Atlanta she decided to go for it! 

Lauren is a Georgia native, and she's counting on her friends and family to come out and cheer her through those 60 miles!  She knows what an impact breast cancer can have on families and is happy to be part of the 3 Day to help find a cure.  Visit Lauren's 3-Day page by clicking here!

Lauren is also sponsoring the Pampered Chef Fundraiser going on now for Music City Spirit.  Please browse the catalog online and enter Sarah Holton as the hostess when placing an order.
