Adam Agard, Proud Dad!

Adam, OPAC senior account executive, is one proud dad. Not only is his 5 year old son brilliant and very cute but he’s also one heck of a runner. Recently, little Andrew participated in a jog-a-thon to raise money to buy computers and other technology for his elementary school. Andrew is in Kindergarten and everything is fun and exciting – even running laps.

Running is fun!

Running is fun!


“Every time Andrew ran past me, he would give me & his mom a ‘thumbs up’.
It was very cute, ” commented Adam.

Several of us were pleased to participate in the school’s jog-a-thon, too. No…we didn’t run, but we gave pledges on behalf of Andrew. We were happy to support both Andrew and a local elementary school.

By the way, Andrew finished with 8 laps – we figure that’s close to 2 miles!  Way to go, Andrew!
