Adam Wasielewski always wanted to be in the Army. “He loved playing with his little green Army men,” said his mom, Marcia. “He was fascinated by anything related to the military.”
While Adam never had the chance to be in the Army, a different kind of army will march in his honor at the Dash for Donation July 9.
More than 66 teammates will come together for the second year as “Adam’s Army” to remember the young boy who gave the “Gift of Life.”
Just one month after Adam’s death, Marcia learned about the Dash for Donation, an event that was taking place just a few days before what would have been Adam’s seventh birthday. “We thought, what great way to celebrate,” she said.
This year, “Adam’s Army” will do the same thing: celebrate the life of a young boy who left an incredible legacy.
“It’s so nice to have an event where everyone can participate,” said Marcia. “Our team includes strollers and grandparents and we can all get involved,” said Marcia.
“Knowing that Adam lives on through his donation brings us some comfort. We hope to inspire others to make the decision to give life after death.”
