Medford, Ore. -- Today is World Meningitis Day and Dutch Bros. is teaming up with one local charity to raise awareness about the disease.

A portion of its proceeds will go to the Dylan McNeil Foundation today. It is a non-profit charity dedicated to advancing research, awareness and support for Pneumococcal Meningitis.

Dylan McNeil lost his life to meningitis just a day before his second birthday in May 2009.

This foundation strives to continue the fight against meningitis, so no other child will have to suffer.
