The Smilin’ Rylen Run is a race of remembrance, a race of hope and a race of love. Join us for the 4th annual Smilin’ Rylen Run on April 24, 2021 at Cane Island, in Katy, Texas. The event features a 5K run/walk and a Kids K! Meet our Rylen… Rylen, who was always Smiling, quickly earned the name Smilin’ Rylen. Rylen earned his angel wings on June 5, 2017, at only 13.5 months old, after a battle with Bacterial Meningitis.
Little but Mighty, Rylen did not leave this earth untouched. Thanks to the medical advances in organ donation, Rylen was able to save 5 lives. Our Mission at The Smilin’ Rylen Foundation is to raise awareness about organ donation and to assist families in crisis. The Cowan Family would like to THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for your generous contributions and continued support! Please join us in celebrating his life and the lives of those he saved!
