Volunteer Spotlight - Nick Mavrick

February 10, 2017

Three years ago at the 2012 Marine Corps Marathon, Nick Mavrick was introduced to Fisher House Foundation. His mom, Kathy Ziegler, spotted Team Fisher House at the Marine Corps Marathon Expo in their bright yellow gear, and signed Nick up to run the marathon with us.  

 “At the conclusion of the race I met Fisher House staff and the more I learned about the Foundation, it’s just such a high functioning team,” Nick explained. “You just see this common thread of commitment to the cause.”  

Since the marathon, Nick and Kathy have continued to support Fisher House Foundation. In 2013, Nick helped the Foundation support the Warrior Games Family Program by creating the family program website, assisting during the week of Warrior Games and taking photos.  


His support has continued to be an asset and his responsibilities increase every year. Nick is a constant presence at Warrior Games – and Invictus Games – while he continues to maintain the websites and even assist with sponsorship follow-up for the Family Program. Nick and Kathy always have a smile on their faces and stop at nothing to support our military families, and we sincerely appreciate their tireless efforts on our behalf.  

“It feeds my heart to be here,” Nick said. “I feel like I am the one being given a gift.”  

Thank you to Nick, Kathy and all our volunteers who support the Fisher House program.
