Run for Ryan: First Annual Run Raises Money in Honor of Chaug Alumnus

The 1st Annual Run for Ryan 5k & 1 Mile Walk will take place this weekend. All proceeds will benefit the RD26 Foundation.

Minnechaug alumnus, Ryan Doyle, was a runner, varsity baseball player, and a varsity football player.  When he was a junior in high school, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and lost his two year battle with the disease on June 16, 2019.

To honor Ryan and the amazing athlete and person he was, the RD26 Foundation was formed.

The goal of the foundation is to assist programs and individuals to improve and positively impact lives in Ryan’s memory.

The foundation will focus on helping families with children battling cancer. The foundation will also award annual scholarships to those who demonstrate kindness, strength of character, and concern for others. Ryan lived with a passion for life, family, friends, sports, and fun and the foundation will support programs and people who share these values.
