Adam’s Place is trying to make a difference.

The local non-profit organization was formed when Kelly Thomas-Boyers lost her son, Adam, in a traffic accident. Adam was not wearing a seatbelt on that tragic day five years ago and since then Kelly has dedicated her life to helping others avoid the same peril. Adam’s Place has met the needs of hundreds of people and will continue to help people deal with losing a loved one.

Crashes involving young drivers also claimed the lives of nearly 3,300 other people in 2009. Teen drivers ages 16-19 have a fatality rate four times the rate of adult drivers.

“Wearing your seatbelt is like getting a hug from someone you love!” Maggie Saunders. Adam’s Place Board Member

On Saturday, April 14th at 7am, Adams Place and UMC Trauma Services will hold its 5th annual Step Out For Safety, Step Up For Health 1 Mile Fun Walk and 5k Run.

Adam’s Place says “Step It Up Las Vegas, And Put Safety First.”

You can help by participating for just $10 for individuals and $20 for families.
