‘Amazing Race’ star visits Indiana School for the Deaf


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – One of the stars of the hit CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” was in Indianapolis Sunday.

Luke Adams has appeared in two seasons of the show including this year’s all-star season.

He signed autographs as part of the Indiana School for the Deaf’s annual fundraising fair.

The event is considered to be the largest annual gathering of deaf and hard of hearing people in Indiana.

Adams, who is deaf, told 24-hour News 8 he was thankful to be here.

“I wanted to expose to the deaf community that it doesn’t matter if you’re deaf or can’t hear, whatever, that you can do a lot of stuff and there are a lot of young kids here,” Adams said. “And so I came to be a role model because I want them to know they can achieve their dreams.”

Sunday’s fair also included games, a classic car show, and monster truck rides.
