Welcome to Buckets With A Purpose - Max Adelman
I’m Max Adelman, a student-athlete at the Hun School of Princeton. I'm from the great city of Memphis! This year, I met some very special people, organizations and have been inspired by my experiences to dedicate my talents and passion, to fundraise for Autism Speaks and create “Buckets With A Purpose”. I met Jack Dunavant and the Dunavant family this year through my mom. Jack’s dad, David, founded GIveGood (www.givegoodco.com) in Memphis, creating handcrafted food products to employ and empower individuals on the autism spectrum. His son, Rob, has Asberger’s syndrome. I began to learn about Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and the broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. I became inspired by NBA Cares and its partnership with Autism Speaks and the advocacy of NBA and WNBA greats Deron Williams and Elena Della Donna for autism awareness. Now, the NBA is partnering with the nonprofit KultureCity, to make 19 basketball arenas “sensory-inclusive” so, for example, the team at GiveGood and other child fans with autism or sensory processing disorders can go to NBA games. I’ve been in love with the game of basketball my whole life and now I want to combine my passion for basketball with a social purpose and support Autism Speaks and raise awareness for the children and adults on the spectrum and the many talents and passions they have and challenges they face. Please join me and donate to “Buckets With A Purpose”.
