Gregory Crawford is traveling across the country to raise awareness for a rare disease and on Wednesday he made his way to Brady.

Crawford, a dean of sciene at the University of Notre Dame, is riding a bicycle in order to raise money to treat Niemann-Pick Disease. the disease is a rare genetic, cholesterol storage disorder that strikes children with death occurring before or during adolescence.

Crawford's friend, Ara Parseghian, a two time national championship football coach at Notre Dame, lost three of his grandchildren to the disease.

Crawford's goal is to raise $500,000 to fund clinical trials of a new drug that was found by a Notre Dame researcher. This is his fourth ride across the country in raising money for the cause.
