The โAdam Frey Challengeโ Invites Wrestling Teams to Share Adam Freyโs Inspirational Story
The Adam Frey Foundation has announced โThe Adam Frey Challenge,โ which invites wrestling teams to match Oklahoma State Head Coach John Smithโs bid to purchase 25 copies of โAdam Frey: A Collection of Blogs & Storiesโ and distribute them to his team to read. Any teams interested in matching Smithโs offer and purchasing multiple copies the book should contact Adam Frey Foundation president Cindy Frey at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be listed as challenge participants on AdamFreyBook.com.
The book contains the stories of Adam Frey, a gifted college student and wrestler at Cornell University, who passed away at age 23 after a 21-month battle with cancer. During his struggle,ย Adam kept a remarkable blog that became a dailyย inspirationย forย thousands and won him fans around the world. His blog entries โ which chronicle his experiences as a young cancer patient and eloquently reveal Adamโs faith, humor andย spirit โ are the core of the book. They are intertwined with numerousย first-handย tales from Adamโs life as told byย someย ofย those closest to him.
All proceeds of the book benefit the Adam Frey Foundation, an organization created by Adam himself before he passed away, which provides cancer patients with gifts and support to make their treatment experience a more enjoyable one.
The book is co-authored by Adam Frey and fellow Cornellian James Moffatt, who has written three other books of wrestling stories: A Turning Point (with Roger Olesen); Wrestlers At The Trials; and STROBEL: Stories From A Life With Wrestling. Amateur Wrestling News recently selected Moffatt as the 2010 Bob Dellinger Award winner naming him โThe National Wrestling Writer of the Year.โ
โAdam Frey: A Collection of Blogs and Stories is not just about wrestling. Nor is it merely about cancer. Itโs a book that transcends both issues in a way reminiscent of the classic movie Brianโs Song about Brian Piccolo of the Chicago Bears. Both share the same theme of athletes battling courageously, supported by family, friends and faith, to provide a story that is, yes, tragic, but, ultimately uplifting.โ -Mark Palmer, Intermat
โThis book will touch all readers. Itโs a raw behind-the-scenes look into Adamโs life, his pain, his sport, and his loves. Adam, in many ways, was the man behind the curtain, pulling the levers and strings on the hearts of those he loved.ย Buy this book and help make Adamโs dream become reality.โ - Scott Casber, Takedown Wrestling Media
