The event is held in memory of Andrew Parmeter. In January of 2011, he was a passenger in a car that hit a patch of snow and skidded off the road into a tree. After approximately 3 weeks in the Brain Trauma Intensive Care Unit at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, Andrew succumbed to his injuries.
Andrew was an active young man who loved fishing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and being with his young nephews and friends. He had been working to reach his goal of joining the Navy and entering Special Forces training. Had he survived, he would have required a lifetime of support, like that provided by the Hickok Center.
The mission of the Hickok Center for Brain Injury is to provide a safe, supportive environment that encourages people with brain injuries and other neurological challenges to design and direct their own life journey.
I would like to take this time to acknowledge the loss of two of our ADP “family” this past year.
David Beckwith: Andrew’s uncle passed away suddenly this past July. David was an instrumental part of the ADP Races. His eye for detail and his computer skills were so important to our success. David you will be dearly missed.
Stanley Hattman: Many of our runners return to the ADP races year after year. You may remember the drummers on the race course encouraging you along. Stan was kind enough to volunteer his time for many years. Our condolences go out to Stan’s family.
