Southwest Missouri teacher trains for Boston Marathon

Local News

MONETT, Mo. — A southwest Missouri woman is on a marathon mission.

Amy Sampson is a teacher at Monett High School, and she’s getting ready to run in her first Boston Marathon.

But she’s not doing it just for herself. She’s raising money and awareness for skin cancer.

Sampson has had family members, as well as her running coach, affected by malignant melanoma, so the cause is close to her heart.
