Adam Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari Energy, is taking significant steps toward making a difference in others’ lives, especially those with physical disabilities. The oil and gas entrepreneur is launching his newest charitable endeavor, The Ferrari Foundation. The foundation will support charitable causes that focus on health and serving those with physical disabilities.
Recently, Adam Ferrari announced his new one thousand-dollar scholarship under The Ferrari Foundation. The scholarship is intended to assist in funding higher-level education for those accepted and planning to attend or currently attending an accredited college or university who wish to pursue a degree in health science. The goal behind creating such a scholarship is to aid in providing better quality care for patients with physical disabilities.
Eligible candidates that meet all the scholarship’s requirements, including a three-point-five GPA, can apply by submitting a one-thousand-word essay. In their essay, applicants are asked to describe any experience they have working with patients with physical disabilities. Alternatively, or in addition, interested students are asked to explain why pursuing a career in providing care to patients with physical disabilities is appealing. The deadline for application submissions is on January 15, 2021, and the Adam Ferrari Health Science Scholarship committee will announce the scholarship winner that same month.
Ferrari Energy always strives to provide a helping hand when it comes to bettering the community. Under Ferrari’s leadership, the company has maintained annual donations to various non-profit organizations in Denver and Chicago, including St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Freedom Service Dogs, Denver Rescue Mission, Coats for Colorado, and Next Steps of Chicago.
Next Steps of Chicago holds a special place in Ferrari’s heart and is a contributing factor in the development of the new Ferrari Foundation. Ferrari has continuously supported Next Steps of Chicago, which is devoted to the wellness of people who have paralysis. The non-profit organization hits a personal note with Ferrari due to his father living with transverse myelitis. At the age of sixty-seven, Ferrari’s father, Dan, became quadriplegic. Since then, Dan has been receiving care through the Next Steps of Chicago.
Ferrari believes that awareness is the first step toward positive action, so knowing more about another’s physical disabilities and considering what life is like from their perspective is crucial. Paralysis is the loss of motor function in certain parts of the body after an issue occurs with their connection to the brain. There are multiple paralysis types, and side effects can be permanent, temporary, or on and off.
