Strides for Adam - NEW DATE - August 16th, 2020

New Date: August 16th, 2020


I hope this message finds you well during these unpredictable, unprecedented times. We, at Strides for Adam, have been monitoring the Covid-19 situation and have worked with the City of Riverview to coordinate a new date for the Strides for Adam 5K run/ walk and Reflection Walk. Please understand that, depending on the recovery and corresponding restrictions, this future date may also need to be changed.

At this time, we have been approved for and are working towards a new event date of Sunday, August 16 with an 8am start time. The event still starts and finishes at Young Patriots Park. Since you have already signed up for the event, your registration is still valid for the new date. The t-shirts, participation medals and all awards will still bare the date of the original event date because that was Adam’s 18th birthday and he is the reason we started this event.

Now more than ever, we need positive events to look forward to. Now more than ever, we need to focus on others’ as well as our mental wellness. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in August. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we get through this quickly and get back to life as we knew it.

Any questions please email me here.

Stay healthy, be safe, keep moving forward!
