I thought I should bring to your attention that this event was actually organized entirely by Robert Radifera Photography in order to support Ryleigh Katstra in her fundraising efforts for the local food bank. It seems to me that he deserved some credit in this piece for organizing the event and also for generously donating 25% of all profits to the food bank. Bottom line though is that Ryleigh has a big heart and her hard work has been recognized as invaluable to the local community.

A huge thanks goes out to professional photographer Robert Radifera, and his wife Lauren Clarke, for making this event possible! I love your signature Jump for Joy events because it benefits a great cause, families love jumping, and they receive outstanding photographs. Thanks for all that you do!

Many thanks to Jump for Joy, and to Ryleigh's parent(s), because this requires lots of adult support.

Wow -- Ryleigh has done more by the age of 9 to help people than many of us do our whole life. he generosity of Robert Radifera photography is also touching. What a great story amidst all the depressing ones!
