More than 400 people turned out for Rosarian AcademyÕs Family Fun Night Feb. 10 to remember Rosarian Academy fifth-grade student athlete Oakley Debbs, who died in November from anaphylactic shock stemming from a nut allergy.

Many of them were clad in red sneakers, OakleyÕs favorite. They came for a night of fun and games and the chance to contribute to Food Allergy Research & Education, the charity designated by Red Sneakers for Oakley.

After some relays and events in the gymnasium, attendees headed to the athletic field for games and carnival-style food.

The Debbs family stressed the importance of using the Red Sneakers for Oakley foundation as a way to raise awareness about nut allergies.

Zappos underwrote the event and gave every fifth-grader and their homeroom teachers a pair of red sneakers. They also set up a table with information related to food-allergy prevention and awareness.
