About the Foundation


Introducing Tad’s Kids!

The Tad DuPriest Foundation began in 2006 with a group of close friends who wanted to commemorate the loss of their dear friend, Tad DuPriest, who lost his life through a tragic car accident at the young age of 19. Through our annual fundraising events, along with terrific community support, we have raised $1,000,000 and been a proud supporter of ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Now, in our 10th year, we have some exciting changes to share!  The Tad DuPriest Foundation has changed its name to Tad’s Kids.  We also present our new program, “Camp Unplugged”.

 The inaugural weekend session of “Camp Unplugged” will be held August 19-21, 2016 at Camp Hanover where campers are asked to look up from their screens. With activities that give them the tools to tackle issues related to social connection, self-esteem, stress, resiliency and accountability, Camp Unplugged’s fun and meaningful outdoor experience will help kids be kids again.

Who’s eligible? Camp Unplugged’s first session is open to middle school students who want to learn, grow and connect with their peers. Applications are available by going to the Camp Unplugged page of our website.  There is no cost to attend however donations are appreciated.  A second session for high school students is being planned.  Click here  to get camper and volunteer applications and learn more.

How can you help? Make a donation to Tad’s Kids today. Because all kids are “at risk” of falling prey to the pressure and anxiety they face navigating the “tween” and teen years today, there is no cost to attend Camp Unplugged. Consider underwriting the cost of a camper, $300.  Click here to make a donation or send a check to:    Tad’s Kids,  8 S. Plum Street,  Richmond, VA  23220.

With gratitude,

Cameron Wick, President, Tad’s Kids
