Family, friends and acquaintances of Oakley Debbs, who died at the age of 11 in November 2016 from a fatal anaphylactic reaction resulting from a mild nut allergy, gathered again atop Aspen Mountain on March 19. Their goal was to raise awareness about food allergies through the nonprofit Red Sneakers for Oakley, which focuses on educational and community outreach programs, setting precautionary protocols, and providing allergy advocacy. Oakley was an avid athlete who wore red sneakers in the sports he played.
