ON THE ROAD TO DISCOVERY

Growing Bolder's Wendy Chioji is on an adventure this summer that raises money and awareness about a rare and often fatal childhood disease, and she's bringing you along for the ride. Wendy is nearing the end of a three-week bicycle journey that has taken her from Texas to Maryland as a member of the Road to Discovery team. It's the brainchild of Greg Crawford, the Dean of the College of Science at Notre Dame. Over the past four years, Greg has devoted a month (or more) of his summer to raise awareness about Niemann-Pick Type C, which claimed the lives of former Notre Dame head football coach Ara Parseghian's three young grandchildren. Greg’s rides have helped raise millions of dollars to pay for research that’s done at Notre Dame and through Coach Parseghian’s foundation.
