The inspiration behind the Team Adem website is Adem Crosby, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in January 2011, a few days after his 17th birthday. Adem was truly a remarkable and inspirational young man whose battle with leukaemia has touched the hearts of many people. Even though suffering great adversity himself, Adem used his illness and experiences to inspire and help others. As Adem’s condition worsened his desire to make a difference certainly didn’t. Sadly Adem passed away on 4th May 2013 but his wish to help others lives on through Team Adem.
Since 2011 Team Adem has grown and is making a profound difference to many lives. Team Adem, thanks to its many supporters has raised over $700 000 for organisations who care for and accommodate patients, families and seriously ill children while they are receiving treatment for their illness. Team Adem’s Greatest achievement however is the Team Adem Blood Donation Community, which is the largest in Australia and has potentially saved over 45 000 lives since 2013. Having received over 350 blood transfusions himself, it was Adem’s wish for the Team Adem Blood Donation Community to grow and save thousands of lives each and every year.
Team Adem is a Not-for-profit charity run by a small but dedicated committee, headed by the Crosby family. We invite as many people as possible to join the Team Adem family and help us help others. Please consider supporting Team Adem by registering with our blood donation team, following Team Adem on Facebook, Instagram, attending our events or making a donation.
