Salisbury Students Perform, Give $1,000 to Race for Adam Foundation
After garnering the most votes in an online video contest, Casey Creveling and Alan Mendez finally got to present their $1,000 prize on Saturday to the charity for whom it was always intended: the Race for Adam Foundation, which funds research of Niemann-Pick Type C, a rare genetic disease.
The pair, who attend Salisbury High School, were inspired by Salisbury Middle School teacher Sean Recke's son, Adam, who has the disease. They wrote an original song, "Tomorrow Afternoon," for a video they entered in a contest to help charities, 1G for Good, sponsored by First Generation, a marketing firm in Allentown. The video received 136,820 votes and can be viewed at 1gforgood.com
On Saturday, they were joined by their bandmates in Identity Crisis, Tommy Walters and Danny Syvret, also Salisbury High School students, to present the check and perform for the Reckes at Cruise for Adam fundraiser at the Lucky Strokes Mini Golf Course in Bath.
