Make A Difference
Presented with the gospel
While a student at Cary High School, Sgt. Mark P. Adams participated on the school’s wrestling team and developed a passion for the sport. After his initial enlistment, Sgt. Adams returned home and was a volunteer with his former coach. It was during this time home that Adams felt compelled to rejoin the Marines in the fight against terrorism.
The Cary High School wrestling team won the North Carolina State Championship the season following Sgt. Adams’ death. The team had a Marine emblem with Sgt. Adams’ name on their state championship ring to honor Sgt. Adams and to recognize the impact he had on the lives of those he helped coach. The Foundation wants to continue the legacy of Sgt. Adams and desires to continue to help and positively influence middle and high school wrestlers.
