Adam Keefe is the coach for the Belfast Giants of the Elite Ice Hockey League and a former Canadian professional ice hockey player.
Adam is a key figure and one of the most popular former players in Belfast Giants history as he was selected by the Giants season ticket holders as their 'Fan Favourite' and was chosen by his teammates as the 'Player's Player of the Year'.
Over the past few years, Adam has extended his help to the Charity by raising funds and much needed awareness in Northern Ireland. Adam took on his 'Sober for October' challenge and raised an amazing £1,820.17 for Autism NI. Since then his team have also held golf tournaments, yoga sessions and supported Autism NI through an Ulster University business group.
As well as running his own fundraising events, Adam has leant his help to all sorts of fundraising challenges including bag packs, static cycles and even a zipline!
BBC Presenter and local personality Stephen Clements has been newly appointed Patron of Autism NI.
Stephen has been a valued supporter for Autism NI over many years and even helped launch our Schools campaign, 'Making Sense of Autism'. We would like to thank Stephen for his commitment to increase awareness and support for families living with Autism across Northern Ireland.
