Adalin Farnum ODP

College Scholarships

Ryen O’Meara Canton, MI

Emily Ashby Ada, MI

In Honor of Adalin Farnum – Adalin Farnum was a huge soccer fan with an amazing sense of fashion. She had a wonderful sense of humor, a huge heart, and an uncanny ability to bring out the best in people. Unfortunately, her life’s journey was cut short. She was five when she was diagnosed with cancer and nine when she succumbed to the disease. To those who knew her, she embodied everything that is good about the world. In honor of Adalin’s life, this scholarship program was created to reward those ODP (Olympic Development Program) participants who make the world a better place through acts of kindness, much like Adalin Farnum.
