It's an update story months in the making.
On Wednesday, Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey showed how your donations to WNEP's Ryan's Run 9 last fall are making a difference in our area today.
Ryan, who spearheads the campaign, spotlighted the cutting-edge rehabilitation technology you helped make possible during WNEP's Ryan's Run in 2018.
Last year's campaign, year nine, raised just over $602,000 in about three months.
Ryan's Run benefits thousands of kids and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services across northeastern and central Pennsylvania.
Allied is a nonprofit dedicated to treating people based on need, not ability to pay.
Ryan "followed the money" on Wednesday, June 12, to show your dollars in action.
