About the Event

On Nov. 8, 2020, Adam F. Ward, beloved son, brother, uncle, friend, coach, and dedicated teacher to hundreds of students, lost his brief and sudden battle with Hepatosplenic T cell Lymphoma.

Adam lived a life filled with love, inspiration, and the drive to improve other people’s lives through the gift of education, service, and giving. Adam loved passionately, gave without question, and lived with an unwavering determination to improve other people’s lives. 

To celebrate life, the love he gave, and his spirit of giving, a group of friends got together to create an event to honor Adam’s legacy. The goal of the ReWarding 5K is to commemorate a friend’s life and continue with his tradition of giving and making other people’s lives better through shared activities.
