Riley’s Army is going to decorate a Christmas tree at the Festival of Trees in Greenville NC in honor of our RA children who are battling, in memory of those who battled pediatric cancer, and our volunteers & supporters.

We will decorate the Riley’s Army tree- we will have clear plastic ornaments filled with glitter and tied with a gold ribbon. On each ornament we will paint our RA child’s name and age. We will just do first names only.
We look forward to honoring our RA children and their journey in a beautiful way this holiday season at the Festival of Trees.
