Please join us for the second annual Run for Amy Memorial Trail Race, on September 22nd through beautiful Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA.   The race, in memory of Amy DiAdamo Foster, is meant to celebrate her life through embracing her passions of both running and spending time outdoors. Equally as important to Amy was the opportunity to gather friends and host a great party so don’t plan on leaving after your race, as music, food and libations are part of the festivities!

Amy DiAdamo Foster passed away in 2016 at the age of 41 after a heroic battle with a rare form of cancer.  Her smile and positive energy brightened the world around her even through her diagnosis, surgery, and treatments. We hope to channel Amy’s unique unwavering appreciation for life and her energy into this celebratory event.

Constantly in motion, Amy savored all that life has to offer.  Running, traveling, hosting parties, cooking, any sport put in front of her – she loved having fun (and competing!), and made sure that others around her did as well. In her “downtime” Amy could be found donating her time to many different organizations and will always be remembered for her empathy and compassion to the world around her.

Above all else Amy’s greatest achievement is her three young boys – Henry (11), Sam (9) and Jack (5) – who share her passions, energy and positive outlook on life.

Amy was an accomplished athlete, in college, high school and beyond.  Her best sport was lacrosse, in which she was co-captain of Middlebury College’s first national championship team.  A three time all-American, Amy still holds the record at Middlebury for career points scored, a record that is 25% higher than other player in the ensuing 20 years.  She is a member of the Athletic Hall of Fame both at Middlebury College and Middlesex School.  As an adult, she excelled in roles in development, consulting, education and journalism.  In addition she was a member of the Board of Shore Country Day School and active in many other organizations.

During her long battle with cancer, Amy demonstrated physical and mental strength learned during her years as an athlete.  In a speech given at Middlebury, Amy reflected on how she approached challenges in life:  “Break it down:  you can do anything for 20 seconds.”
