It’s being held at the Washington University Athletic Complex in St. Louis. She’s been training for the event at the Sports Rehab Center in Joplin two days a week.
The event will take place on Sunday, September 9th and is on of 70 plus young people who are all patients at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
