The former Olympian hopes to make a lasting impact on those who attended.

“My hope is that they come away from one, being motivated and inspired to be the best they can be. And how important work ethic is and to never give up on themselves. And always be willing to turn a doubter into a believer,” Joyner-Kersee said.
