It's hard to imagine, after a lifetime of growing and learning together, that Madeline and Ari are getting ready to tackle their first RK3DE!! We're so proud of all her determination and work ethic that have resulted in their amazing success together. We wish them the best of luck in these final days on this enormous journey, and we can't wait to report on their adventures over the next week in Kentucky.

Having that bond and connection over 10 or 11 years is pretty incredible. It’s a bit of a fairytale, isn’t it?”
