7 year old, Ryan Terebetsky, was diagnosed with Leukemia early in 2019. Ever since, he has been unbelievably strong, and is now home from the hospital and doing well. The Township has been doing so much to support him and his family.

His mother and father, Lauren and Anthony Terebetsky, and his older sister Abigail, have been by his side the entire way through, along with his aunt, uncle,and three cousins  Alyson, Jan, Audreyann, AJ Rasimowicz, and me. An ongoing fundraiser, called RYANSTRONG is in place to financially support the Terebetsky family with hospital bills and treatment fees. Bracelets have been sold in the color of leukemia awareness (orange) with the words “RYANSTRONG” and “ONE TOUGH GUY” to show support around the township.

Multiple events have been held in his honor, with all proceeds going straight to his family. A color run was held at Colonia Middle school, that had a run, food, and a dunk-a-fireman tank. Saturday, June 8th 2019, the “Rally For Ryan” was held at Port Reading school #9. It was only a $10 wristband fee for hours of fun. There were bouncers, a petting zoo, a fire safety trailer, kids games, dunk a fireman, speed pitch, high striker, food, drinks, a dj, and much more!

There was a great turnout at both events!  The event ran from 1-5pm and people had a lot of fun!
