Dr. Hannah DePaul qualifies for Ironman Kona World Championships 2017



Last weekend Dr. Hannah DePaul charged out of the water after a 2.5 mile swim leading an entire field of Pro and Elite level triathletes, on her way to second place overall in her age group. She was 12th overall for all women and top 100 for all participants, including professional triathletes. She was there alongside many of our friends, athletes/patients who have all trained a multitude of hours to even make it to the starting line.

This 10+ hour effort netted her a qualifying spot for the 2017 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. This is an amazing feat of athletic effort on her part.

As a Team here at Adams Sports Medicine, we are all very proud of Hannah’s efforts and accomplishments, and look forward to continuing to support her efforts, and the efforts of all of our athletes!

About the Novi Parks Foundation:

Who We Are

The Novi Parks Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Those who serve on the Board give unselfishly of their time, talent and financial resources. Making an annual financial contribution is only part of their obligation. Serving on committees and recruiting others as volunteers, board members and donors has become routine. Providing professional assistance in the areas of legal, engineering, development, construction and financial planning is often offered to the organization as in-kind contributions. Volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and expertise provide additional support.

Why Support Novi Parks Foundation?

Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, a tax-funded city organization, cannot build and maintain a world-class parks system on its own. Private support is essential. Every dollar counts. Together, we will enrich the lives of our youth, strengthen our families, build our communities and empower our city. Together, we are building parks for life.

Giving Options

The value of your generous gift will leave a lasting legacy that will benefit your own life and the lives of others for generations. Cash gifts to the Foundation for individual parks and programs can include bequests by will, charitable gift annuity and more opportunities.

The Novi Parks Foundation raises money for the purpose of supporting park enhancements, recreational opportunities and scholarship programs for local children.  We hope to raise funds to provide support and assistance to Novi Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services as they work to maintain quality parks and provide high quality cultural and recreational programs.  New event for 2015 is “Pour on the Shore”, beer and wine tasting.

Since its inception in 2004, the Foundation has provided:

  • More than $13,500 in youth recreation scholarships
  • More than $9,000 in soccer field improvements and lacrosse equipment purchases
  • $50,000 in contributions to Pavilion Shore Park development
  • $51,800 in support of public art projects
  • $30,000 for the design of playground at Power Park
  • $45,000 for Fuerst Park Gardens
  • $14,650 for Parks & Recreation Needs Assessment Survey
  • $3,000 for Fate of Empires install at Pavilion Shore Park
  • $3,400 to support the construction of the Gazebo at Meadowbrook Commons

Are you passionate about public spaces, recreational & cultural opportunities and the Novi community?  Well so are we!  The Novi Parks Foundation supports the City of Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department through fundraising and advocacy.  Thanks to our many community partners and supporters, the Parks Foundation has provided matching grant funds for city park projects, provided scholarships to youth and funded various park enhancements over the years.  There are many ways to be involved and to support our efforts to make Novi an even better place to live, work and play…

  • Naming Rights and memorial tributes
  • Volunteer opportunities– Board of Directors or event staff.  We are always ready to accept your gift of time and expertise
  • Donations, legacy gifting, or scholarship funding.
  • Special event sponsorships and in kind donations

Novi is fortunate to have so many diverse recreation opportunities and public spaces available for all ages, all activity levels, interests and abilities.  It is our value and belief that park, recreation and cultural experiences connect people in meaningful ways–connections to nature.. to others… to ourselves and our community.  Leisure time is serious business and we want Novi to continue to provide its residents with exceptional leisure time opportunities!  Contact us to learn more about how you can support and be a part of the Novi Parks Foundation!

Island Lake Spring Demo Day – Saturday May 7th

This Saturday (May 7th) is slated to be wonderful weather!  It will be a great opportunity to come out and visit us at the 2016 Island Lake Spring Demo Day sponsored by the Motor City Mountain Bike Association and IMBA. We will be out there with a wealth of cycling industry leaders, talking about our involvement in the cycling community and our medical approach to bike fitting, injury prevention and performance optimization. Stop out and say hi!


Started in 2006 by local industry veteran (and friend) James Knight, the Island Lake Spring Bike Demo is now in its 11th year bringing the best bikes in the market to your trail. It’s a great chance to talk face to face with people who live the life: building, riding, and maintaining the bikes you want to own. Then, take a few out for a test spin on the road and trails at Island Lake, finding the bike that pulls at your heartstrings.

More details and an evolving list of vendors at http://mcmba.org/demo !


Big week for Hannah!

This past week was a big week for Dr. Hannah DePaul…we are so happy to celebrate her 1 year anniversary here with our Team here at Adams Sports Medicine…and this coincides with her birthday! Happy Bday and Happy Anniversary, Hannah!!! Your staff and patients appreciate you!


New Window Coverings

WE are very excited about our new perforated window coverings that were installed on our outside windows this past week. We worked very hard to showcase some of our local athletes and capture the essence of our clinical focus at Adams Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy.

One Soul Graphics in Livonia, MI (WEBSITE) did a great job pulling this project together, and now that the Michigan weather has finally begun to break, they seized the opportunity to put the large displays up effortlessly.

Special thanks to Martin Vecchio (WEBSITE) and Bob Bruce (WEBSITE) for allowing us to use their images.

A huge shout out to some of our local athletes that were included in our shots:

  • Elite/National Level cyclist Danielle Mullis, who has had massive success on the velodrome and on the road, racing locally, nationally and internationally at the highest level.  An all-together awesome athlete with an amazing family around her.
  • Lisa Edwards, local CrossFit athlete and friend that has been around since our first days. She has awesome energy, a very positive personality, a great friend and is a huge ambassador for what we represent here in the clinic.
  • One of our nationally ranked CrossFit athletes Alexis Raptis, who was one of the top 10 CrossFit Teens in last year’s World Championships. Stemming from her years as a gymnast, she has an amazing work ethic and a passion to push herself to the highest limits. She has been a ton of fun to work with, and we love to watch her grow (and stay healthy!) in her sport.
  • Our own Dr. Hannah DePaul, PT, as an elite swimmer and captain on the University of Michigan Women’s Swim Team, a member of the UM and Duke Tri Teams and an amazing triathlete (and mountain biker 😉 ) She provides amazing service and treatment to our athletes and patients, and then continues to race and train alongside them outside of work!
