Holton walk raises big money for a big cause

HOLTON (KSNT) – Two young brothers brought the community of Holton together for a walk.

Rhein and Rhett Murphy are brothers who both have Fragile X, a genetic syndrome related to Autism.

They brought community members together to join their team, Rhein & Rhett’s Runners.

During the walk, participants gave donations to support the Kansas Fragile X Community.

“It’s just a walk where people could come and have fun, you know. They’re learning about this, about how me and my brother really relate to this Fragile X stuff.” said Rhein Murphy.

Last year they were able to bring in more than a thousand dollars and this year according to their mother Cristina Murphy they raised $1,135.
