FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - July 3, 2014 - PRLog -- On July 8, 2013, Bentonville High School sophomore Ryley Williams collapsed during warm up exercises at football practice.  He was immediately rushed to the hospital and within four hours of being admitted to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, AR, it was established Ryley suffered multiple strokes in the left side of his brain.  Battling through intensive surgeries and therapy, Ryley fought against the odds and is now approaching the one year anniversary of the day that changed his life.

Together with SchoolFundr, a school specific fundraising website, and Five Star Sports, a digital and print sports promotion company located in Fayetteville, AR, Ryley’s family launched an online campaign to raise money for two non-profit organizations plus Ryley’s medical bills, equipment, and educational needs.

According to Terri Rose, Ryley’s mother, “We are now a few weeks shy of the anniversary date that changed our entire family’s lives forever, and we want to celebrate but also raise money for the rare awareness and education of pediatric strokes.  A portion of all proceeds raised will be divided among The Bellaflies Foundation for pediatric stroke education/awareness and research, the American Heart & Stroke Association, and the remaining portion will be applied to Ryley’s medical bills, braces for his right hand and foot, and his educational needs to help him successfully complete high school and college.”

The Strength for Ryley campaign is now active on SchoolFundr’s website ( and donations will be accepted through September 2, 2014.  To learn more about Ryley’s amazing story, please contact Jennifer Fancher at 479-527-8640.
