Board


Amalee Dahman - President

In 2012, Amalee’s husband wanted to organize a fun relaxed event with friends, all while helping children. This organization has become one incredibly near and dear to her heart. She feels fulfilled helping support local organizations that do so much for our children and truly helping them feel like a kid again. Amalee loves showing her daughters Dalia and Luna and son Zane what a pleasure it is to give back to others. It’s her hope that one day her children will volunteer, raise money and TRY The Berkshire Triathlon. She wants them to realize what a difference they can make in the world.

Ed Lundberg - Vice President, Race Director

Deeply rooted in local Columbus causes, Ed's passion for charitable work spans nearly 20 years after the passing of a close college friend changed his perspective. From that point, Ed has focused his free time on raising awareness and funds for a variety of organizations. He has sat on boards focused on giving back to the community and positively impacting the lives of others. His motivation is to see others smile big and live healthy lives. Ed resides on the east side with his wife, Ashley, and twin girls, Ollie and Everly. #party

Sean lives in Upper Arlington with his wife, Erin, who has also volunteered with the SeriousFun Network.
