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 w
