Chancellor Lee Adams

Buffs4Life first became involved with the life of Chancellor Lee Adams in 2013 when HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel first aired a segment on "Lee", the son of the CU football alum Rae Carruth and the late Cherica Adams. 

Adams was eight months pregnant when she was tragically gunned down, an act ordered by her then boyfriend Rae Carruth.  Lee was brought into the world and now almost seventeen years later, Lee continues to battle the cerebral palsy that has left him crippled. Despite the setbacks along the way, Lee has preserved mainly due to the loving care of his grandmother, Saundra and also in due in part, to the support of Jon Embree and the Buffs4Life family.

Buffs4Life would like to continue to help Lee and Saundra on this amazing journey by raising funds to assist Saundra build an addition to her home so that some day Lee will be able to live independently.
