Renate and Greg Crawford share a laugh during a dinner held for them by the University of Notre Dame alumni association at the Les Bourgeois Blufftop Bistro on Aug. 13. The Crawfords are riding from Arizona to Notre Dame to raise awareness for Niemann-Pick Type C, a deadly neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects children.

Renate and Greg Crawford stopped in Columbia for dinner with friends on their tour from Arizona to Notre Dame to raise awareness for Niemann-Pick Type C.

The official Notre Dame Science van that is accompanying Dean Greg Crawford and his wife Renate on their Desert to Dome bike ride has been signed by supporters at many stops along their route from Arizona to Notre Dame. The image of the three grandchildren of Ara Parseghian, the namesake of the research organization for which the Crawfords are riding and a former Notre Dame coach, who lost their lives to Niemann-Pick Type C adorns the side of the van.
