Join us for the 1st annual Strides for Adam on March 22, 2020 August 16th, 2020 - The March 22nd date was especially important to us as it was Adam's birthday. He would be turning 18. This is a family friendly event, all ages and abilities are welcome.  There is a 1 mile reflection walk and a 5k run/walk. The event will take place at Young Patriots Park. Strides for Adam is a non-profit, created to keep the memory and giving spirit of Adam alive. Proceeds from this event will be used for service projects, for college scholarships, to help support local athletes. The race/ walk is designed to increase awareness of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

Course:  Race starts near Young Patriots Park. The selection of the course start and finish is meaningful as Young Patriots Park was one of Adam’s favorite places.

The 1 Mile Reflection walk is 3 times around the Reflection Pond, inside Young Patriots Park.

The 5K course is for runners as well as walkers. The 5K course starts and finishes in Young Patriots Park. The course is flat and fast!
