01 Oct Lady Raiders’ dance team coordinator crowned Ms. United States
What happens in Vegas starts in Richmond, Virginia… Congratulations to Laura Eilers, dance team coordinator for Richmond’s Lady Raiders, for being crowned Ms. United States in the 2011 national pageant!
Lady Raiders has been the coordinator of the dance team and a game-day emcee since the Richmond Raiders Professional Indoor Football Team’s first season in the River City. She was crowned Ms. United States at this year’s competition in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 14.
Lady Raiders plans to apply her experience as a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor to promote her “Let’s Move in Schools!” program and encourage an active, healthy lifestyle in America’s youth. She has worked with local schools to institute fitness programs for kids, and will now have the chance to encourage healthy habits on a national scale. Ms. United States will also support Richmond’s “Soles for the City” campaign this month to collect athletic shoes for local children and their families.
