Adam has a goal of lifting 100,000 pounds to raise money for youth addiction treatment. Adam talks about his inspiration for the fundraiser and one of those inspirations is his young son growing every day. Adam did a smaller fundraiser in 2018 what was called “Sit Up for your Recovery” and he did 2500 sit ups to try and raise $5,000 dollars for youth addiction treatment, on the day of the fundraiser Adam did all 2500 sit ups and raised $10,400 for Last Door Youth Program. Coming up to Adam’s 10 years clean he decided he wanted to times that number by 10 and raise $100,000 and that is where the number came from.
