The Friends for Adam Niskar Trust

The Friends for Adam Niskar Trust, established in 1999, aims to raise money for the ongoing medical expenses Adam incurred after a diving injury that year left him paralyzed. These expenses go above and beyond what his insurance company will cover. Your generous donations assist with medical supplies, custom vehicle costs and other expenses directly related to living with his injury, as we await a cure.
