Bill Bodnar memorial bench fund

Dear ADR family,

billrunWe have thought long and hard about how to honor our friend, coach, mentor, cheerleader, father and brother-in-sport: Bill Bodnar. We’d like to announce our goal of raising funds for two memorial benches. One is to be placed at Point Park (final location to be determined but discussions with the city have tentative agreement that it will be up on the look out platform somewhere) and a second bench on the Greenway Trail. If you or someone you know would like to make a donation toward this memorial fund, please send to:


Ashtabula Distance Runners Club

P.O. Box 43

Ashtabula, Ohio


Checks should be made out to the “Ashtabula Distance Runners Club” Please indicate with your mailing that this is meant for the Bodnar Memorial (either in the check memo or include ¬†a note, please). We also ask that you please include a return address. All donations are tax deductible and will receive a receipt.

If you have any questions regarding the memorial, please feel free to email “” or find us on Facebook¬†.


The ADR Board
