In the fall of 1986, 11-year old Keith Algreen suffocated in a gravity flow wagon of shelled corn on his family's Iowa farm.
After her son's unforeseen death, Keith's mother, Marilyn Adams, began a campaign to promote farm safety awareness. In the process, she discovered that an alarmingly high number of children are injured or killed on farms each year.
In an effort to spare others the heartache of losing a child in a preventable farming incident, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was formed in 1987.
Today, the same heartfelt concern and compassion that founded the organization still drives Farm Safety 4 Just Kids' members, chapters, and staff to work to fulfill the organization's worthwhile mission.
Marilyn Adams, Spokesperson, President and Founder of FS4JK serves first as a mother and farm wife. She also travels the United States and Canada as a child farm safety advocate. In that capacity, she gives a face and a voice to Farm Safety 4 Just Kids and the entire child farm safety movement.
