50 Miles for 50 Years

Our Marketing Manager, Adam, is a runner. And he runs a lot.

Adam is relatively new to OPEN M, he started in July of last year but believes in OPEN M and its mission 100%. So much so that he has decided to do something that most people would think a bit crazy.

He’s going to run 1 mile in honor of each year OPEN M has been serving our neighbors and community. This being OPEN M’s 50th Anniversary he’s going to run 50 miles!

Adam has chosen our Community Works Connection program as the main benefactor of his fundraising efforts. You can learn more about CWC by clicking the button below.

Would you consider pledging per mile or a flat amount to help support OPEN M’s mission and show Adam a little appreciation for taking on such a challenge?

Let’s learn a little more about this guy who thinks running 50 miles sounds like a fun idea and where & when this will all take place.

Adam started running a few years ago and quickly moved from local 5ks to marathons and eventually onto ultra-marathons (any race over the standard 26.2 mile marathon distance). Over the past couple years he’s ran races of 100k (62 miles), 50k and a 50-mile race through the trails of the Cuyahoga Valley and MetroParks trail systems.

Where will all this happen?

Adam has decided to run this distance in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Eagle Up Ultra race in Canal Fulton on June 9th. The race is held on a looped course and every 5 miles finds itself back at the park & start line. That means there is plenty of space for spectators to come down and cheer him on. You can even put in a mile or two with him if you feel so inclined!
