Yesterday Ariane ran a 5K race out in west Kaysville. It was the 2012 Deak’s run for Hope and it benefited the grandson of Arianes visiting teaching companion. Deakon was born with an extremely rare chromosomal abnormality, Ring 18. Essentially the second strand of DNA on his 18th pair is missing some pieces and has formed the shape of a ring, it can cause severe mental retardation and many who have the abnormality do not live very long. This is our neighbor, Jenny and her grand daughter who both also ran the race.
