Jeremy and Leah Schapiro, Owner/Operators, were thrilled when the opportunity presented itself in the Summer of 2009 to move back to Wisconsin. Fleet Feet Sports Fox Valley, the third franchise location in the state of Wisconsin, officially opened its doors in November 2009.
Jeremy brings his years of community involvement and Fleet Feet Sports management expertise to Fleet Feet Sports Fox Valley. He has considered graduating from running half-marathon distance events to a future marathon, but in the meantime enjoys selecting races based on the crazy race shirts. Prior to becoming a local business owner, Jeremy worked for the YMCA and the American Red Cross in Youth Programming, Community & Volunteer Programs, and most recently as Director of Operations.
Leah began her involvement with Fleet Feet Sports nearly 13 years ago as a volunteer and active member of her local running community. Seven-time marathon finisher and three-time Ironman, she has enjoyed stepping off the road and onto the shoe floor to trade experiences and ideas. Also new to the business world, Leah previously worked at the United Way in Community Building, met Jeremy at the American Red Cross when she was hired to do Strategic Planning and Program Evaluation, and prior to the career shift to Fleet Feet Sports, spent years in Program Development & Organizational Development.
Jeremy and Leah love engaging in the Fox Cities community and supporting others' fitness goals. In March 2011, they welcomed Lucy Olive, the cutest little Appletonian on the block. She is the joy of their lives and the reason they love to go to work AND to come home each day.
Stop in, say hello, and let Leah and Jeremy show you around the store!
