Participants are asked to wear green.

"We will have green ribbon pins, flyers to share and a card station to create birthday wishes for Ryan and thank you cards for local law enforcement for their efforts," the flyer said.

A short presentation will be held as well as a moment of prayer.

Ryan's sister Taylor posted a heartbreaking note for his birthday on Facebook:

"Happy birthday to the funniest and kindness kid I know. I miss you so much Ryan. You are so strong and loved by so many. Please come home soon so you can celebrate your birthday with us. Happy 12th birthday, I love you," the post said.
