About Us


Dylan and Sanzio

Dylan Whitesel

My name is Dylan Whitesel. I graduated from Midlothian High School in 2015 and am currently a student at Virginia Tech.  I was a member of Midlothian’s varsity soccer team for two years, accomplishing the milestone of making it to States both years.  In addition to high school soccer, I have played travel soccer since the age of thirteen and was selected as a captain my senior year.  Other passions of mine include snowboarding and traveling to various parts of the world.  In 2014, I was chosen to attend the highly respected Virginia Boys State at Radford University as a delegate of my high school.  A few years ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She’s been battling it ever since, always coming out on top.  I am thrilled to be a part of this adventure with Sanzio.  Together, I know this dream of ours will become a reality.

Sanzio Angeli

My name is Sanzio Angeli, and I am currently a student at Virginia Tech. I graduated from the Math and Science Center at Clover Hill High School in 2015.  I was a member of the Clover Hill High School golf team and I am an Eagle Scout of Boy Scout Troop 1893.  I enjoy camping and being outdoors, as well as spending time with my friends.  Ever since I was a young child, I have always been interested in space travel and naturally gravitated to the hobby of model rocketry.  Following my love for rockets, I recently attended the Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars week long academy at NASA’s Langley Research Center.  As a person who loves a good challenge, I am excited to embark on this record breaking fundraiser with my good friend Dylan.
