Rider volleyball team presents check for disease research
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - For our Good News tonight, Rider High School’s Lady Raider Volleyball team has presented a check to the International Foundation for CDKL5 research.
The volleyball team held a ‘penny war’ to help raise money and awareness. This was done in honor of Claire Ratliff who passed away from the condition in July.
“A huge thank you to Coach Yandell and the Lady Raiders volleyball team for their support of our family and the memory of our daughter,” Russell Ratliff, a teacher and coach and Rider High School said.
CDKL5 is a rare neuro-developmental condition, that is characterized by early-onset epilepsy.
