Team Ryman was amazing! We had over 67 team members at the walk yesterday morning! How amazing! We can not thank each and every one of you enough, walkers and donors, for the support and love we have felt through this event! Even people wearing shirts when they couldn’t make it. Makes my heart so happy! We raised over $4,000 and still have donations coming in. The most amazing thing is that my company is going to match at least $3,000 of that for a Team Ryman total of more than $7,000! That money can do a lot of research and support. Since 1979, the Research Awards Program offered by the American Liver Foundation has provided more than $24 million in research funding. Over 800 qualified scientists and physicians have pursued careers in liver disease research and treatment as a result of receiving these grants early in their careers. We are playing a huge role in their ability to continue these grants!
I also look at the walk as a way for us to honor the two babies who play a huge role in why Ryman is here with us today and running around crazy like a normal toddler. There are two livers in the clouds on the Team Ryman shirts to represent them. We walked for them yesterday as well. So if you aren’t an organ donor please consider. http://organdonor.gov/mobile/
Can’t wait to do this event again next year!! Thank you all so much!!

Shirts for the walk are ready and you can buy one even if you aren’t able to make the walk. We can ship shirts out as soon as they get in or if you are participating you can get them the morning of if I don’t see you before then. Shirts are $20 with a percentage of sales going to our team for the American Liver Foundation Nashville. Orders will be taken until the September 10th. You can paypal money to email@example.com for those who want to pay that way or you can give us a check or cash when we see you. Or put it in the mail: 8106 Stacy Square Ct Nashville, TN 37221. The more we sell the larger percentage we will be able to donate! If you think you may need a different size than is available let us know and we can look into options. Also, This is an American Apparel shirt which is great material but they tend to run a little on the small side so take that into account when selecting your size. Big thank you goes out to Corey Snyder for designing this amazing shirt and Nicole DiPatrizio Eggers for hooking us up at custom ink!
Corey did such an unbelievable job capturing Ryman’s story in one graphic! If you ever need someone to design something for you, he is the man!
The Nashville skyline and the DC skyline are merged together to show Ryman’s cross country ventures as well as represent the hospitals / teams in each city since we love them both.
Mixed in with the clouds are the 2 livers Rye received, they were a gift from heaven and we wanted to pay respect to the donors and their families in some way. On the bottom border is every bible verse quoted on the blog. At the very bottom there is a propeller for Rye’s first airplane ride. Finally there are some cool crab claws to represent Maryland, because you know, thats what Maryland does.
Join us in raising awareness and funds for reasearch, education and advocacy for those affected by liver-related diseases. Ryman’s doctors have recorded grants from the ALF and we want to help them continue to do so! Thank you everyone who has already signed up or donated!!
