Event Fundraiser to Memorialize Remi Weiman

As we gather for the Patch Sprint weekend, we have a special opportunity to honor the life and legacy of Remi Weiman, a beloved Camp and Patch Sprint alum. In collaboration with the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation (ADKSF), we are hosting a meaningful fundraiser that aligns with Remi's passions and values. 

Inspired by Remi's love for running, hiking, and sustainability, we have once again partnered with Got Sneakers, a remarkable zero-waste sneaker recycling organization. Got Sneakers recirculates sneakers to secondhand markets, making them accessible to individuals at affordable prices. This initiative not only benefits our community but also helps address the environmental impact of sneaker production.

Did you know that sneakers, due to their non-biodegradable materials, often end up in landfills or are incinerated? This contributes to the release of toxic chemicals into our air and soil, exacerbating the effects of climate change. By participatin

 Here's how you can get involved: 

1. Bring any used athletic sneakers you no longer need to Patch Sprint on Friday or Saturday.
2. Look for the designated donation bin outside the race check-in desk and at the race start.
3. Place your sneakers in the bins, knowing that Got Sneakers will responsibly recycle them, diverting them from landfills and reducing the need for new shoe production.

In return, Got Sneakers will pay for the total number of sneakers; that payment will go directly to the ADK Scholarship, in Remi’s name.

We kindly ask you to spread the word about this initiative to your fellow participants, friends, and family. Together, we can make a lasting impact on both our community and the environment.

On behalf of the ADKSF, and Remi's entire family (who will be at this year's event), a heartfelt thanks for keeping Remi's spirit alive by helping future generations of children!
