Spring Family Event

Thanks to our title sponsors, the Hauserman family,  Adam’s Camp and Partners in Pediatrics were able to hold hoops for hope again in 2014!

This one-of-a-kind event on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at Cherry Creek High School featured the Can Do Cougars against the No Limits Lions all in support of the children and families of Adam’s Camp!  The teams were made up of celebrities such as former Denver Nuggets, Earl Boykins, Walter Davis and Bill Hanzlik, CBS4 news anchor Jim Benemann, and 7News’ Theresa Marchetta, the crew from Partners in Pediatrics, supporters of Adam’s Camp and some very special campers.  Guests got to see some great basketball but even greater entertainment including a performance by Biff Gore of NBC’s, The Voice.

Together, we raised over $65,000 but that’s not the only amazing thing that happened.  Our second year of Hoops for Hope was a wonderful celebration of all that Adam’s Camp values: children, families, teamwork, fun and hope.  Our campers played side by side with former professional athletes.  Cheerleaders and dancers with special needs gave it their all as did Biff Gore, recent contestant of NBC’s, The Voice. Everybody came together demonstrating what we can do when we focus on realizing potentials and developing strengths.

For over 20 years, we have worked together to offer a Spring family event that is great fun for families and raises funds to support Adam’s Camp. Well over $1,000,000 has been raised allowing countless children, youth and families to experience the healing and hope of Adam’s Camp.


Denver Nuggets Ambassador, Nick Owens, graciously made the following opening remarks:

nicholasowens_150x211“I have been working with the Denver Nuggets for the past 16 seasons in the locker room and the past 3 seasons as an ambassador.  It is a privilege to be here as I have a special relationship with Adam’s Camp.  We give away tickets to Nuggets, Avalanche and Rockies games under the names of Nick’s Picks or Game Day Memories.  We want to give the families a chance to go and enjoy a game that they might not otherwise have an opportunity to do.  Family is an important value which is why we do this.  We also want to make sure you get a chance to have some fun.  Each of us has challenges in our lives.  Sometimes they are called disabilities.  Sometimes it is hard to do things, but I have always said, ‘As long as you can put your mind to something, you can do anything.’  We need to focus on our abilities, not our disabilities.  ‘Cant’ is not part of my vocabulary.  Adam’s Camp gives us a chance to have fun and focus on doing the best we can with what we have.  I hope you enjoy this game as much as I’m going to.  Thank you.”
