In Memory of Amy Schuerholz Metz
The parents and siblings of Amy Schuerholz Metz, a devoted and avid runner, are pleased to announce The Amy Schuerholz Metz Scholarship, in partnership with Charm City Run. The ASM Scholarship will provide a meaningful way to remember Amy while helping to support and further inspire high school runners who, like Amy, are passionate about running and living life to the fullest.
The ASM Scholarship is founded on Amy’s fondness for Charm City Run, the Timonium store, the races, and, most importantly, the people who she met through Charm City Run. The current Charm City Run Scholarship will be renamed in honor of Amy, and will be awarded annually to an eligible male and female high school senior in Maryland.
Amy was an amazing person who cared deeply for her family and friends, and pets, most particularly dogs. She loved running and always did so with a smile on her face, even during her long runs. Amy loved competing in races, running with friends, or just enjoying a solo run with a wide-range of music keeping her company. She loved supporting others in running and always encouraged her friends and family to join her. Some of her favorite races were the Baltimore Marathon, Across the Bay 10K, Charles Street 12 and the Coastal Delaware ½ marathon, just to name a few.
Amy was a true inspiration to everyone she met, on and off the running path. She spent many hours on the NCR trail, and her medal rack covers all kinds of races – from marathons and ½ marathons to 5Ks and Rebel Races.
The ASM scholarship will honor Amy’s legacy and will be a constant reminder of the special person she is and will always be.
