About Adam

The Seed

The inspiration to create this foundation centers around Adam Hryhorchuk, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose on September 20, 2013 at the age of 22. Adam had a very special quality. He was genuinely interested in every person he met and valued people for who they were and what their story was. He gave a hand up to kids who were not in sync with the crowd. Every person’s tale mattered to him and he understood how isolation impacted people. His open-minded approach touched and made a difference in people of all circles. He was a popular hero for the underdog. Sadly, while he gave so much, he didn’t take enough for himself. From this tragedy has come a deep desire to connect with youth because, as Adam so clearly demonstrated, every person has a story and they need to be heard. Even if only for a few minutes a day.
