Corporate Sponsor: The Race for Adam Foundation, a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to funding research projects to find a treatment and cure for Niemann-Pick Type C disease (NP-C) and related neurodegenerative disorders, began in 2005. In July of that year, Sean and Amy Reckeís seven-year old son, Adam, was diagnosed with NP-C, a genetic neurodegenerative disorder for which there is no cure.
Due to the family's kindness and respect for everyone, the community came together to help them; they are a family who has shown great patience, strength and hope in this time of urgency. Adam has touched the lives of everyone he has met, and continues to embrace life with a perfect smile. With the support of the community, a seed of hope has grown and continues to branch through events that will promote awareness and funding for research into NP-C and related neuro-degenerative disorders. The Foundation is named in honor of Adam Recke.

During the summer of 2016 Lehigh Valley Phantoms center Cole Bardreau happened to mention to someone at the American Cancer Society his involvement in supporting the society's breast cancer awareness initiatives in college.
Bardreau told them about events he helped with at Cornell, ones that had been pretty successful, and how as a member of the Phantoms he might be able to aid the cause even more.
The American Cancer Society of the Lehigh Valley took him up on his offer.
