VWFEST raises money for 'Race For Adam Foundation'

The Lehigh Valley Dutch Dubbers Volkswagen Car Club announces that their annual charity car show held at Young VW in Easton, PA has raised $1,000. for the 'Race For Adam Foundation'. Special thanks to everyone who came out to VWFEST 2012 to support the cause, Young VW for hosting and all of our sponsors.

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 Recke’s 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.

The Race for Adam Foundation would like to thank the Dutch Dubbers for organizing this great event and allowing more people to become aware of Adam and his disease. We are very grateful and look forward to working with you again in the future.
