We found LeiLani through a simple request for volunteers via our Facebook page where her mom (Katrina) offered to help out in some way. Once we discovered her daughter was a singer, we knew exactly how they could be a part of the Iron Dog.
When to be there
We kick off our color guard and pre-race ceremonies at 10:30 a.m., Sunday, February 20, 2011 at the Start of the 2011 Iron Dog.
LeiLani Steddum is a 12 year old 7th grader at Mirror Lake Middle School. LeiLani was crowned Miss Alaska Preteen this past summer and has been attending and performing at functions throughout the state along with representing Alaska at the national pageant over Thanksgiving at Disneyland.
LeiLani is an Army brat and the daughter of CW4 Jim and Katrina Steddum stationed at Ft Richardson. She has an older brother Kimo and a baby sister Mikki. LeiLani’s pageant platform is “Military Kids, Following Their Dreams” and she’s doing that every day as she represents our state and military kids everywhere.
