Name: Casey Adams

Age: 13

School: Sunrise Middle School

Synagogue: Congregation Beth Israel

Date of bar mitzvah: Aug. 25, 2012

Describe your mitzvah project: I am putting together a team to run in the 5K "I-Did-a-Green-Run" in Phoenix on Sept. 9, 2012. I am also trying to raise as much money as possible to donate to the Esophageal Cancer Action Network (ECAN). I am asking friends and family to support me by donating money and/or running with me. I will also provide information about esophageal cancer to everyone who comes to my bar mitzvah. In addition, all the yarmulkes that will be worn in temple on the morning of my bar mitzvah will be periwinkle because that is the official color of esophageal cancer awareness.
