Lynn Hall – Founder, President
This happily married mother of three has over 30 years working in the health and human services fields, 15 years of personal/group training experience, and an undying passion for helping people achieve their goals. “I believe that we can do anything we put our minds to. Sometimes we just need a little support along the way”. Owner of BoldrDash, an Obstacle Course Event Series that has built it’s obstacles in scalable levels so every person on the course can achieve success since 2011.

Karen Medeiros – Secretary
I am a short 4 foot 11 inch tall, sweet 52 year old Grammie of 5 (soon to be 6 in August 2019) so being active is a daily routine. I am a firm believer that you will never know your true limits if you don’t try anything. My height has been an issue for many obstacles but it has never stopped me from trying! So far the only obstacle that has stopped me is a field and track hurdle…it comes up to my shoulders! Oh, and did I mention that I’m a great cheerleader!!
I have experience in many fields from secretarial work to financial high risk analysis but my true love and passion is teaching/training others. My husband, Paul, and I volunteer for several children’s charities, here and abroad, and believe Find Your Bold emphasizes what we truly stand for, short and sweet (no pun intended)…turning obstacles into opportunities. You can’t succeed without failing first so the next time you face an obstacle and it knocks you down, try again as many times as you need to succeed and if necessary, ask for help.
Sarah’s favorite aspect of the OCR World is the camaraderie that can be found on the course, no matter the skill level of the participants. This is most prevalent in the Find Your Bold Team, which is why she decided to join the Find Your Bold Board of Directors and do her part to help as many people as she can overcome the challenges they face and reach their goals both on the course and off. By joining Find Your Bold, Sarah hopes to expand the team’s reach to include veterans who struggle with reintegrating back to civilian life. She wants to introduce them to a welcoming community that understands and respects their unique experiences and provide them with resources to make their transition to civilian life easier.

Sue Budlong – General Board Member & Marketing Committee
Great adventures start outside your comfort zone! This life motto sometimes provides great stories, or a lot of bruises…sometimes both. Find Your Bold is an organization unlike others – it physically challenges us to take chances – embrace our internal voices, and external naysayers. My internal voice shakes down my resolve when it comes to heights. Flying isn’t a problem – believing my leg can flip over an 8 foot wall and land me in the right place is. The thought of dropping down the 9-10 feet shakes me up! I am blessed with a family who inspires me, humbles me and loves me. And so thankful for those friends that are family. Over the past 25+ years, I have worked for Dave’s Fresh Marketplace, most recently as their Marketing and Communications Director. Find Your Bold is an organization that brings people together, and fosters a commitment to having great adventures! Join us!

Bio Coming Soon
Jane Bennett – General Board Member & Event Committee Member
My name is Jane Bennett and I am a District Manager for Lids. I worked in retail for 25 years with 15 of those as a DM. I am a Certified Personal Trainer as well. Although I have not had any official clients as of yet, my passion for fitness began about 4 years ago. I have always struggled with being extremely overweight and because of that did not allow myself to enjoy life. I have lost over 80 pounds since June of 2015 through a lifestyle change of my diet and physical activity and the help of some very important people. In Sept of 2016, I did my first Boldrdash race. This race for me defined the Find Your Bold concept. The race was more than just a physical accomplishment for me, It allowed me to overcome life barriers and gave me confidence in other areas of my life. I started working with FYB to help others overcome life obstacles and find their own BOLD.
