Name: Beke Zapel
Crew status: one year RAAM veteran
Primary role: Crew

Becky - married 20 years to my high school sweetheart (David, '02,03 crew member). I've been a stay at home mom since the birth of our first son 16 years ago. We have 4 boys ages 16,13,11,11. For the past 9 years we have live in Cle Elum minus 2 1/2 years we lived in Alaska due to work. Currently, my time is spent homeschooling the 3 younger boys.
When the kids were in public school, I enjoyed being a teachers aid and substitute teacher for special reading. I enjoy helping in dramas and being involved with music. I have been assistant director for 5 plays and acted in 3. As a family we enjoy camping in the summer, traveling, and watching kids play various school and community sports. I have served in many different areas of our church as well - most recently being Director of Women's Ministries for 2 years. I have also traveled to Chile', Ecuador, and Peru on missions trips as well as toured southeast United States with a music group called the Continentals. I am looking forward to going on RAAM and serving a great group of guys who are determined to see Allen take 1st place again. I am trusting that the abilities God has given me will be multiplied and filled with grace and love.

Allen's Words
Beke was a great crew member in '03 and I'm very happy she's back for '04. Her strengths were apparent to everyone making RAAM just a little bit easier. She took initiative in organization, encouragement and uplifting all the crews spirits. I know she will be a strong asset to the crew and look forward to having her as I pedal across America. Thanks Beke.
