Running for Riley Fun Run/Walk is another great race for a great cause

Riley Duquette was born in May 2012 with a rare disease that falls under the umbrella of Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorders. PBD refers to disorders in the Zellweger Spectrum – rare, genetic, metabolic, terminal conditions affecting all major systems of the body.

His family – mother Karly Duquette and stepfather Shawn Moseley – put together the Running for Riley Fun Run/Walk last year as a way to raise money and awareness for families affected by rare diseases and to celebrate the health of those fortunate enough to participate, and the second annual event is set for Saturday. It’s also a way to bring the community together and enjoy a nice day outside, all while contributing to a worthy cause.
