Remember Riley

In August 2009 Tylor, Sy and I went to Seattle for the NNPDF family conference. While there we met some amazing families struggling with NPD or struggling with the loss of their child from NPD. Unfortunately, we never got to meet Riley Corbitt but we did have the honor of meeting her family and friends. Tylor hit it off with them right away and really bonded with them. So in support of National Niemann Pick Awareness Month and Riley's family we are heading down to Alabama to participate in the Walk-a-Thon!! I know driving 12 hours to walk crazy right?? So I decided to make a vacation out of it.
