Asher Agency – Vice President/General Manager

Year Joined Fort Wayne Trails Board: 2016

Board Positions: Vice-Chair and Chair of the Marketing/Communications Committee

Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

As a runner (and sometime biker and walker), I love the fact that Fort Wayne has such a great trail system. I also believe the trails have a tremendous impact on our economy and quality of life. Our trails are perhaps my favorite thing about Fort Wayne.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

To me, the Trails are all about “miles of possibilities.” Making it possible to connect to downtown, retail, and other community identifies. Making it possible for people of all ages to stay active. And making it possible for Fort Wayne to attract and retain business investment and talent.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Running. I’ve been a runner most of my life and our trail system has allowed me to keep going.

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

I’m most excited about Fort Wayne Trails’ positive impact on health and wellness in our community.

What Do You Want People To Know About Fort Wayne Trails?

Commuting via walking and biking is so much easier than you’d imagine–and so much more fun than driving. Our trails are accessible and safe, and they connect users to just about anything you’d want, from nature to neighborhoods.


Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
