What initially was a devastating moment in his parent's life, would become the same reason they started Casen's Crew.
Heather and Casey Riley wanted to honor their son every year on his birthday, August 24, and support all families affected by cardiomyopathy through community events.
This year, they've decided to conduct a golf tournament and a 5K run/walk where they hope they can raise more than 7K. The proceeds will benefit the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation.
Heather, Casey, and their three-year old son Carter paid a visit to KTAB 4u Wednesday to tell Casen's story and explain the details of the event.
