Race to Fund Pediatric Cancer Research

Monday, March 10, 2014

i-DfvSQcX-MHope doesn't just move us forward. It puts us in the fast lane.

When we talk about moving forward in the race to fund research for pediatric cancer, we mean "pedal-to-the-metal" forward.  Fast. Furious. Fantastic.

Enter Alex Welch.  Man on a similar mission.

Alex is an Audi Sport Customer Racing driver and a member of the GMG Racing Team.  He likes things fast.  He has a big heart.  And he has an equally big hatred of pediatric cancer.   He's our kind of guy.

We've buckled up for the ultimate partnership.

Alex has been a donor and friend of the Morgan Adams Foundation and participated in The Race Against Kids Cancer and The Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing Club.

For 2014, Alex decided to pursue his dream of racing in the North American Endurance Cup. He is campaigning an Audi R8 LMS for GMG Racing, and his teammates are James Sofronas, Marc Basseng, and Frank Strippler.

Here's the awesome part.

Instead of looking for a sponsor, Alex donated some of his car space to The Morgan Adams Foundation. Our logo has prime placement of the hood and on top of the back fenders! Alex and the entire GMG racing team have embraced MAF as a charity partner and invited foundation members to join them at the 4 endurance races this season. Joan and Matt were track-side at Daytona in February.

So how do you get in the race?

The next race is the 62nd annual 12 Hours of Sebring and we have an exciting fundraising component. You can now pledge a dollar amount per lap that The Morgan Adams Foundation car will complete during this race. PLUS Alex has also generously offered to match our first $5,000 in fundraising efforts for this race.

THE RACE IS ON.  CLICK BELOW DONATE TODAY AND FEEL THE ADRENALINE RUSH OF RUNNING OVER CANCER ON YOUR WAY TO THE FINISH LINE.

Our MAF Audi hopes to complete the race and should complete over 300 laps in the 12 hour period.  

CLICK HERE TO PLEDGE RIGHT NOW>

Keep your eye out for our logo on the #32 car in the GTD class on Saturday March 15th. The first 3 hours of the race will air on Fox and the entire race is streamed live on http://imsa.com/. We will also be updating you throughout the race on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Remembering Steven Adams

Monday, September 23, 2013

Many organizations have a heart and soul. The Morgan Adams Foundation also had a “father figure.”  Steven Adams, the father of beloved Morgan and half of the power couple who helped create The Morgan Adams Foundation, passed away on September 22, 2013.  While our hearts are heavy with this news, we are grateful that his suffering and long, valiant battle with a rare form of cancer is finally over. We wish him peace and Godspeed and remain a community forever grateful for his unwavering commitment to helping children in need.

Steven loved photography, art, and creative people who “colored outside the lines.” He loved fast cars, beautiful airplanes and people who used their gifts in life to help others.  And above all else, he loved being a dad to Morgan, Andrew, and Grace.

He hated cancer.  Period.  

From the moment it grasped Morgan during her kindergarten year to the moment it took his own life, it was his declared enemy and he devoted his life to fighting it. 

Together with his wife Joan Slaughter, they formed The Morgan Adams Foundation and have raised over $2.5 million to fund pediatric cancer research in Colorado and beyond.  His life, determination, and stubborn insistence on never giving up, has truly saved lives.  His legacy will be more children who go on to middle school, high school and beyond rather than having their young lives cut short.

Steven was never afraid to approach others to join in his campaign. He urged many a restaurant or bar owner to partner with MAF for events of all kinds.  He mingled with the elite pilots and drivers at the Morgan Adams Concours d‘Elegance and he was soul mates with every photographer and artist who contributed to artma.   He worked long hours behind the scenes setting up and tearing down events and formed life-long kinships with those who worked beside him.  As one artma committee member said, “Steven's passion for this cause, sometimes so intense you couldn't contain it, (or escape from it), sucked me in.  And so here I will stay, long after he is gone.” 

In his fight for kids with cancer, Steven pushed everyone to think bigger, try harder, never settle and never stop. Dr. Nicholas Foreman of The Children’s Hospital Colorado said,  “Steven was the most buoyant, energetic and creative person I have ever known.  Courageous in the face of great loss and from that loss making a community focused on the future and not the past.  A man whom the hardships of life, and his own devastating illness, could not diminish.  Through his vision, many children with cancer are cured and this remains his victory over that terrible disease and death itself.”

He was fearless.  Inventive.  Creative. Imaginative. Unstoppable.  Sometimes incorrigible.  Always a flirt.  Never a whiner.   Forever loved.

Steven’s dream will now take on a new shape as we have created the Steven Adams Memorial Endowment Fund to benefit The Morgan Adams Foundation.  Information and online donations can be made at morganadamsfoundation.org (when making a donation, please select the "Steven Adams Memorial Endowment Fund from the drop-down menu).

Steven turned his grief over the death of Morgan into a powerful force for good.  Now, it is our turn to do the same for him.
