Tiffany Copeland

After completing two marathons, and teaching a weekly kids fitness class…Tiffany is a warrior. So it makes sense that she’s our Director of Fitness Warriors! Tiffany works with some of our most dedicated volunteers, and makes sure our Fitness Warriors program is offering fitness classes in the areas that need it most. She graduated from Virginia State University where she studied psychology. She’s still involved in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., and serves as Vice President of the policy council for the Improvement Center. As a Springfield, Massachusetts transplant Tiffany loves exploring Richmond with her family, and trying new things together when they get the chance. She first got involved at Sports Backers by completing our Fitness Warrior program, and joining our Sports Backers Marathon Training Team. Her favorite event is the Corporate Run because it’s a huge work function that morphs into a race, and ends with a huge office party!
