Rainy skies couldn’t stop J.H.S. 194 William Carr School in Queens, New York, from uniting to walk a mile to raise awareness for one of their own students, Tyler Kilpatrick, on May 5. Despite being held indoors, the walk was a success, with the entire school participating.
Derek Kilpatrick, Tyler’s brother, started a walk at their school, to raise awareness for his brother. Tyler was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), in his leg. “I wanted to do something to help get my brother back and make sure he knew I was always there to support him in any way I could,” says Derek.
