Don’t Just Complain About Amyloidosis, Do Something About It

On Saturday, 29 October, 2016, the Adam Gardiner Fund will host Come Racing at Rosehill Gardens in Randwick, Australia.

The event, like everything the AGF does, is intended to raise funds to support the treatment of amyloidosis, a rare disease in which abnormal proteins are deposited in tissues and organs throughout the body.

The Adam Gardiner Fund was established in memory of Adam Gardiner, who lived with amyloidosis before succumbing to the disease at the age of 35.

Adam has been described by friends and family as someone who “never did anything half measure.” He believed that anything could be achieved with hard work, but should also be tempered with humor and good fun.


Adam loved sports, particularly football. In fact, the Jersey Flegg Cup in Balmain has named their Player of the Year trophy the “Adam Gardiner Memorial Trophy.”

Come Racing tickets bought after August 31st (meaning after the early bird period) go for $260, and all tickets must be purchased by 30 September.

Tickets include:

  • Entry to the Rosehill Gardens course and directors suite
  • A fully catered lunch
  • Beverages throughout the day
  • Door prizes
  • Access to betting facilities
  • A racebook

Women are encouraged to show off their spring fashion while men are required to wear a shirt and tie. Prizes for the best dressed male and female will also be given.

The event is also sponsored by the Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club.

James Ernest Cassady

Though "Ernest" is a family name that's been passed down for generations, James truly earned his middle moniker when, at the age of five, he told his mother that "laughing is stupid unless EVERYBODY is happy." Since then, the serious little bastard has been on a mission to highlight the world's shortcomings (and hopefully correct them). In addition to his volunteer work at hospitals and animal shelters, James also enjoys documentaries and the work of William Faulkner. He is originally from Oklahoma.
