Our Cause

He loved God. He loved people. That was his life. Now he's running for God, in God's marathon"

Ryan Johnson was born April 3, 1991 at Alliance Community Hospital. The son of Roy and Linda Johnson, brother of Erica, Ryan was an enthusiastic, happy teenager who loved God, athletics and life.

He attended West Branch High School, where he was a gifted multi-sport athlete and routinely had his teachers and classmates laughing. His compassion, caring and optimism captured the hearts of everyone around him.

In April of 2008, Ryan passed while running during a West Branch home track meet. But his joyous spirit, devotion to faith, and love for life is carried on in the hearts and souls of everyone he left his mark on.
