Family of Alianna DeFreeze celebrates her 17th birthday with community fundraiser

EUCLID, Ohio -- The family of Alianna DeFreeze is keeping her memory alive on what would have been her 17th birthday.

On Saturday, the Alianna DeFreeze Let's Make A Change Foundation hosted a fundraiser on her behalf at a roller rink in Euclid.

Her father, Damon DeFreeze, said the proceeds will be used to help buy transportation vehicles for students to ensure they receive a safe ride to and from school. They also hope to build a new facility for the foundation.

Alianna, who was 14 years old at the time, was murdered by a child predator while on her way to school.
