Meet Andy…

“My name is Andy Querio and I live in Aurora, IL. I have been a very happy customer of Nell and Ken at Blue Diamond Athletic Displays since their beginning. But, more than that, I have been proud and good friends with both of them over these many years. I’ve watched them sprout from a small seed and continue to grow over the years to where they help runners across the country proudly display their many accomplishments. The product speaks for itself – solid, heavy duty, and unique to each runner’s tastes. They both understand and get runners, aware of what makes us tick, and work with each individual.

Nell and Ken worked with my idea and helped create a special medal display for my special year of 12 half-marathons in 2015. They also, made another unique design that they worked with me to make to support the team I run with – Team DetermiNation, an endurance fundraising part of the American Cancer Society where each athlete on the team participates in races and raises money to support the mission of ACS. I’ve run 13 marathons and many half-marathons as part of this team “making every mile more meaningful” over the last 20 years – with Nell and Ken being great supporters of me and this mission.

This next year, building on my 69.1 Half-Ironman Duathlon, to tackle marathon #14 and my first 70.3 Half-Ironman, I’m sure I will be ringing Nell’s phone to que up a new display. In summary, Nell and Ken and the Blue Diamond Athletic Display team are a terrific example of a family owned business doing great things and very happily, proudly, and passionately supporting the sport and the community they love.”
