The theme at Monroe High School’s annual Twilight Track Meet was “LIGHT IT UP BLUE”. The students used the Meet as a fundraising campaign donating proceeds from ticket sales, concessions, etc. to non profit organizations that serve children living with autism. Agility Angels was chosen to be a recipient of the event for the second year in a row. Several of the Angels coaches and dogs were on hand to talk about the program and answer questions. We would like to extend a Huge THANK YOU to the entire staff and student body at Monroe High School!!

Agility Angels along with family and friends have again hosted Water Stop #3 for the Glass City Marathon. Water Stop #3 is located at the 4.1 mile mark of the 26.2 mile course. Over 4,200 runners passed through our stop this year with many runners expressing their gratitude for their water or Gatorade. This year we were assisted by 67 volunteers including staff from Eddie Lee’s Restaurant, Charlie’s Homemade Ice Cream, Optical Arts, and Ottawa Hills Girl Scout Troop #11047. We would like to express our thanks for a job well done to all those who braved the extremely wet rainy conditions and the very early hour to volunteer their time making this event a complete success.
