Warminster, PA – (June 19, 2012) Freedom Credit Union employee Adrian Lopez raised $1,000 to participate in the 19th Annual Gelatin Olympics, which benefits the Kids-N-Hope Foundation. A Systems Analyst in the IT department at Freedom, Adrian slid into 700 gallons of gelatin at the event on the evening of Wednesday, June 13th.

“Getting to slide was so much fun, and the best part was raising money for a great cause,” said Adrian. “I’m really proud of Freedom’s involvement with this event and having the opportunity to participate!”  

Out of the many sliders, Adrian came in fourth overall in total donations. He dressed as Katniss Everdeen, the main character from the popular fiction series and movie The Hunger Games, for his big slide into the gelatin. Adrian dedicated his slide to the memory of his cousin, Ariel, who had special needs and passed away at the age of 12. Many members of Adrian’s family, plus a number of friends and fellow Freedom employees, came out to support him and watch his slide.

Kids-N-Hope Foundation is a charitable organization which raises funds for children with special needs through various events and promotions, like the Gelatin Olympics. The foundation was created by American Heritage Federal Credit Union in 1996 and has raised almost a million dollars since its inception.
