Ann Schmidt was a TSA manager for 8 years during which time she took the position to a new level. The 94 Red Girls were the envy of the club for all that Ann did for them “above and beyond the call of duty.” Most notably, Ann was diagnosed with what ultimately turned out to be terminal breast cancer in 2005. Despite this illness and its debilitating treatment Ann maintained her enthusiasm, positive attitude and caring approach to managing her team right up to the time of her passing. All the TSA girls loved her as she loved them. She was an unbelievable role model for the girls in TSA embodying the very core spirit of courage, determination and strength in the face of adversity along with love and compassion for others we strive so hard to instill in all TSA youth. For this we name our annual run the “Ann Schmidt Run to Remember”.
