Minnesota eWomenNetwork Member Competing in Mrs. Minnesota International Pageant to Support Asthma Awareness and “Go Red for Women”
I’m excited to announce that my girlfriend Vicki Lynn Klasell, eWomenNetwork member from my home state of Minnesota, is competing in the upcoming Mrs. Minnesota International Pageant on March 6th and 7th in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
Of course, I am highly biased — but just look at that photo of Vicki. What’s more important is – not only is she beautiful on the outside, she’s just as beautiful on the inside. When her son, Trenton, was diagnosed with asthma years ago, Vicki was determined to find ways to help him breathe easier and her quest not only helped Trenton, it’s helped many other children as well.
In October of 2005, she became involved in educating other parents of children with Asthma and speaking to groups. As a mom of a child with Asthma, she knows how terrible it is to watch your child struggle to get enough air. Her experiences with Trenton’s Asthma taught her much that she has used to help other children suffer less.
Vicki is participating in the Mrs. Minnesota International Pageant because of her passion for Asthma awareness and education. As a speaker, educator and advocate for children with Asthma, the titles of Mrs. Minnesota or Mrs. International would provide her with a greater presence to continue her work and reach out to help more children breathe easier and change more lives.
The Mrs. Minnesota International Pageant is scheduled for March 6th and 7th at the Ritsche Auditorium in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Click here to learn more about the Pageant. As an added bonus, another Minnesota eWomenNetwork member, Kelly Jahner-Byrne, is the 2001 Mrs. Minnesota International and she will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the event.
Please help me in congratulating Vicki and sending her best wishes as she contends for this prestigious award!
