"IVINS - On March 24, Red Mountain Elementary School staff will join forces with the community to help a child in need with the Miles for Molly fundraising run.

The daughter of Ivins residents Dallas and Melissa Dixon, 18-month-old Molly, was born with a rare genetic disorder named Williams Syndrome (less than 30,000 individuals in the U.S. are affected). People with WS struggle with many critical health complications such as cardiovascular disease, muscle and bone structure issues and learning disabilities.

Weighing just 3-pounds, 10-ounces at birth, Molly has already undergone several costly surgeries to help with her condition.

She has also experienced extensive hearing loss.

Miles for Molly was organized by Linda Kreyling and Sherri Lords of Red Mountain Elementary school, where Molly’s mother teaches second grade.

“Our main goals are to help Molly while promoting the benefits of healthy living,” Kreyling said. “I would like to encourage everyone to sign up. Not only will [you be helping] a sweet and loving child, but you will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery we have [here in Ivins].”"
