State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) has completed Season 10 of the FIREBALL RUN, an online reality-filmed entertainment series. She was joined in the show’s 10th anniversary season alongside other local residents, Lafayette Township Trustee Lynda Bowers and Sandra Sparber.  Team Ohio finished the race in second place in their class.

Since 2007, FIREBALL RUN has been The Most Epic Adventurally in America®, a gripping 8 day, 2000 mile, life-size trivia game, where America serves as the game board—part live event, part streamed, and part 25 episode series. Unlike reality TV, FIREBALL RUN is authentic and real, with 40 celebrity and aspirational driving teams competing for bragging rights, a greater cause, and a plastic road sign, all while raising awareness for missing children.

Team Ohio was assigned and raised awareness for a local missing child, Ashley Summers. Ashley, now 23, who has been missing since 2007, is considered an endangered runaway who is believed to still be in the local Cleveland area. Participants Representative Anielski, Sparber, and Trustee Bowers raised media attention that could inspire someone to come forward with new leads for police.

“When approached with the idea about participating again in the Fireball Run, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to highlight the search for ALL missing children, especially Ashley Summers,” said Rep. Anielski. “It was a great opportunity to raise awareness for both the missing children, and also to draw attention to the prevention of youth suicide, which is another important issue to me.”

To move about the country and score, teams solve clues and accomplish tasks based on area, points-of-interest, history, and culture. Although a living trivia game, there is nothing trivial about FIREBALL RUN's message or results. Often referred to as “the most fun you will ever have, doing the most important thing you’ve ever done,” every team is assigned a missing child from their home of origin and tasked with distributing posters. The effort annually distributes 65,000 posters across America and has helped with 47 recoveries since 2007. Child Rescue Network serves as the show’s official charity.

The event was streamed live.   All seasons and all episodes are available online at<>.

(2016) FIREBALL RUN 10th Anniversary took place from September 23rd through October 1st, traveling from New York to Pennsylvania to Maryland to Connecticut and Massachusetts.
