Morgan Adams Foundation 8th Annual Race Against Kids Cancer | Colorado Event Photographers

Morgan Adams Foundation 8th Annual Race Against Kids Cancer | Colorado Event Photographers

This weekend we had the honor for the 3rd year in a row of being apart of The Morgan Adams Race Against Kid's Cancer charity car race out at High Plains Raceway. This was the 8th annual race and always it was full of laughs, sweat and a lot of tears. As always we donate our time and whatever proceeds we make from any pictures that we sell. We have been blessed to work along side an amazing organization with such an incredible cause for the last 3 years. 

We have been the "go to" photographers for capturing the cars as they line up on the grid as well as the grid girls. The Girls are part of a donation process for the event, you donate to the foundation and can have a Girl stand next to your car to shade the driver with an umbrella or just make the driver feel like they are professional driver out at the Indy 500. This is what this event is about, having fun and raising money for a great cause. Many friendships have been made out there on the grid between the girls and drivers or the drivers and us. Cori made $40 to donate just by grabbing a spare umbrella and running out to shade a driver since Saturday it was almost 100* in the afternoon. 

During the lunch break some of the drivers will grab their spare helmet, refuel and offer Charity lunch rides at speed on the track. Also, there are plenty of contributors to the foundation whom will bring out their super cars and hand over the keys to a professional driver to give people the ride of a lifetime around the track. This year on Sunday  at the end of the lunch break and before the final races for the weekend there was a moment of silence for the two ambassadors to the Morgan Adams Foundation that we lost to cancer this year. It was a bitter sweet ceremony as there were Flags either side of the US flag all weekend that had the initials and special design for each ambassador we lost that were brought down and given to their respective families.

For as long as i (Cori) can remember i heard about "The Morgan Adams Foundation". It was on the TV or even just a common name heard at events we had been at growing up . To be a photographer that is selected every year at Two of the largest events, just does not seem real what so ever. To be working along side such amazing people is just amazing. Lots of people would say we are crazy for donating not only our time... But our equipment as well. We do not see it that way at all!!! We see it as an amazing way to connect with a large group of very kind, giving, and loving people. Not an opportunity every day people get to experience.
