Our team of volunteers are some of the most dedicated and passionate people, working tirelessly to bring cycling opportunities to the Midwest. Together we are continuing to pave the way for women and girls in the sport. Will you join us?
Co-Founder & President
Cathy leads CWEC with inspiring levels of energy and excitement that is contagious. We couldn't ask for a more driven, positive, and fearless leader.
Co-Founder, Team Coordinator & Designer
Daphne leads by example by showing riders how to succeed, be a good teammate, and reach their best potential. AND her design skills keeps CWEC looking fresh at all times.
Annie oversees the fundraising efforts and works to ensure CWEC has the resources it needs to function at a high level and continue to grow. Now she has one more reason to train hard: payouts.
Race Production Manager
Kevin makes sure the racers can focus on racing and not worry about their ice socks, rubbing brakes, trainer skewer location, and EVERY OTHER RACE DAY DETAIL. He is our very own denim clad super hero.
Nathan & morleigh
Behind the camera, this duo captures images for CWEC that make you stop and take a second look. At races, you can always count on them having a well-curated snack bag.
Race Director & Communications
In addition to her role of Race Director for the 2016 Women's Midwest Road Race Championship, Maria is a tweet and gram master. She keeps the masses up to date of CWEC happenings and inspires us all to up our hashtag and caption game #thanksmaria
Membership & Individual Giving Director
Crystal's expertise in program administration and wit is instrumental CWEC's membership and individual giving programs.
Parties are very important and we're lucky to have someone like Lisa at the helm.
Kayci works hard to help us bring in grant money and keep our racers racing!
The creative mind behind getting the CWEC mission out into the world.
Liz is the first up and the last to bed all race week. She fills and washes bottles by the dozen, manages meals, and does enough loads of laundry to cloth an army. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and we are so lucky to have her on our team.
Race Day Support
Jason's super soigneur skills kept us us fed, hydrated, and feeling great during some of the most extreme weather conditions we experienced racing together.
Annicka & Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan
From starring in and producing the Raise the Road video, to fundraising, social media, and editing our messy copy, these two do it all.
Lisa is a fantastic volunteer, helping the team towards success on race day and showing her support throughout the year by becoming one of the very first CWEC Members!
All CWEC riders work with the organization to keep their wheels turning.
Social media maven Anna uses her super powers for good. She always finds the positive in any situation, looks 2 steps ahead and plans accordingly, and soaks up whatever nugget of (cycling) knowledge she comes across.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who have helped Chicago Women's Elite grow since the very beginning.
