Cherie Morgan What do you do with a former Birkie Executive Director who knows just about every aspect of all things Birkie? We put her where she could work her magic! Cherie is now the Birkie web guru and Media Coordinator. When we need a photo uploaded, copy changed, or ezine created, she makes it happen. When we need a news release written and sent out, she makes it happen. When media want race details or skier contact info, she makes it happen.

It was 1993, and sure enough, Cherie came down with a bad case of Birkie Fever when she saw the race finish on Main Street. It was the first Birkie she had ever seen, and she was enamored with the crowds, the cow bells and the athletes, from elites to citizens. The Birkie grabbed her that day and, she admits, will likely hold her forever more.
Once married, Cherie and Brett dreamed of moving to Hayward after retirement.
...
Cherie, a graduate of UW-Stout with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality & Tourism Management, joined the Birkie team on Race Day 1996. During the next several years she'd see the good, the bad and the ugly.
The good: "The people involved in this event and the communities that make it happen," she says. "When people asked me if I missed the Birkie after I left to have my son, I always said I missed the people. Actually, I never really left, and the people are the reason I stayed on and continue to help in some way. I also never could give up the adrenaline rush I get during Race Week."
The bad and the ugly, all in one: "Mother Nature in 2000," Cherie remembers.
