Giving A Lift: Athletes Serving Athletes

At Easterns Automotive Group, we are always inspired by organizations making a real difference in our community. One such organization is Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA), which started in 2007 by a group of Baltimore athletes inspired by the father-son racing team of Rick and Dick Hoyt.

ASA’s mission is to advance the quality of life for individuals with limited mobility by empowering them to train for and participate in mainstream running events. Their focus on inclusion connects ASA Athletes with community runners through their Wingman Program, fostering the spirit of “Together We Finish!”

David Slomkowski, the Executive Director of ASA, highlights the extensive work they do for Baltimore’s differently-abled athletes. “We serve 12 communities throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan area,” says Slomkowski. “We’ve been able to offer our program free of charge for the last 14 years.”

In recognition of their invaluable support to the community, Fox45 and Easterns Automotive Group were thrilled to surprise ASA with a $2200 check as part of the Giving a Lift initiative. This program supports community groups and non-profits that are “giving a lift” to neighbors through their impactful programs and outreach.

We are proud to support ASA and their commitment to empowering athletes and promoting inclusion in the community.
