 About Annie

Annie Marie Ryan was born August 10, 1984, the youngest of our six children. For twelve and a half wonderful years we were blessed with her presence. She was a feisty child, full of life and love, with a smile that could light up a room! We lost Annie to a brain tumor in January of 1997. As a family, we came to the realization that the only way we could really heal was to try to help other children.

On May 17, 2015, we will proudly host the 16th Annual Annie Ryan Run to benefit Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Children’s Programs. We do it in memory of a little girl who left us too soon but whose spirit and smile will always be with us.

Jim & Marie Ryan and Family
