The Adam Towler Memorial 5K/10K honors a young man whose life was tragically cut short in an act of shocking violence on July 16th, 2006 in Laramie, Wyoming.

Adam was raised in Laramie.  He attended high school at Portsmouth Abbey in Rhode Island. He completed his freshman year at Emory University.  He had been accepted to the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington DC. He was to begin classes in the fall of 2006.

Adam was an extremely caring person who wished to become a noble humanitarian.  He was a great friend to those who knew him. The loss of Adam is a tremendous loss for the world. He had already contributed a great deal. Imagine all the good deeds and works and love and kindness will be left undone in his absence.  He donated much of his free time to charities and church activities.
