2015 Celebrate Life Event & Fundraiser

What is the Celebrate Life Foundation?

Celebrate Life Foundation Morgan with the blizzardIn January of 2012, our lives changed forever when our 3-year-old daughter, Morgan, suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at Lambeau Field, as a result of a rare genetic heart disorder. Thanks to our CPR training and a nearby AED, we were able to bring our little girl back to life, and we quickly realized how precious life truly is.

Over the next year, as we searched for the cause of her arrest, we learned of many children who did not have the same great outcome, because they did not have immediate access to an AED.

To help prevent future catastrophes for other children and their families, in 2013 our family created the Celebrate Life Foundation, not only to celebrate the anniversary of our daughter's "rebirth", but also to raise money for Project ADAM and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

For the past two years, we have held a celebration of life that has raised thousands of dollars to help establish and support CPR and AED programs in our local schools.

Where does the money go? Does it stay in our community?

All proceeds from our 2015 event go directly to Project ADAM and are earmarked for Green Bay Area Schools.

What is Project ADAM?

Project ADAM began in 1999 after a series of sudden deaths among high school athletes in southeastern Wisconsin. Many of these deaths appear due to ventricular fibrillation, a condition in which the ventricles cannot pump blood into the body.

After Adam Lemel, a 17-year-old Whitefish Bay, WI, high school student collapsed and died while playing basketball, Adam's parents — Patty Lemel and Joe Lemel — along with David Ellis, a childhood friend of Adam's, collaborated with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to create this program in Adam's memory.

The project helps schools in Wisconsin and across the nation implement programs to make automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available. Our programs also aim to support schools in being prepared for a cardiac emergency through staff CPR and AED training, student CPR education, fundraising ideas and support and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) awareness education for students, staff and families. An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac problems. The project also is involved in research and advocacy efforts.

Project ADAM is a 501C non-profit charity.

How can individuals get involved?

We are currently looking for volunteers for our 2015 event. Activities include: distributing posters around town, contacting local businesses for participation/donations, and volunteering at the event itself. To volunteer, contact Susan Frain, Chair of the Celebrate Life Foundation at (920) 737-2409.

How do I make a donation?

The Celebrate Life Foundation accepts donations year round. Checks may be made out to the Celebrate Life Foundation and mailed to:
