Help Ryan's Family Recover

Read Ryan's full story here:

A 7th grader, Ryan Rodriguez, was in a terrible  accident. He was struck by a truck while riding his bike, and he was dragged approximately 100 feet before the truck stopped.  He sustained multiple serious injuries, and has a long road to full recovery.  Understandably, Ryan's grandmother (his guardian) has had to take time off from her job to help care for and support Ryan.  

His classmates and teachers at St. Jude Catholic School in Chattanooga miss him and have been working to raise funds, in hopes of easing some of the financial burden.  One of the kindest and most ethical young men at his school, Ryan makes it easy for others to want to give back.

And now, his teachers and friends are asking for your help.  Will you consider donating, even a small amount, to help this beautiful family get through a difficult time?  Desmond Tutu once said, “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

On behalf of Ryan and St. Jude, we thank you.
