EDDYVILLE, KY — A fundraiser for the Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky took place Saturday in Eddyville, Kentucky, at Lee S. Jones Ballpark.

Sarah Richardson is the program director of the Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky. She explained what events like Saturday's fundraiser mean to her.

Sarah Richardson with the Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky says support from the community warms her heart as the parent of a child with the condition. 

"It's amazing, so good to see everybody here supporting Jadison. I have a daughter with spina bifida myself, so watching this and all the people that come together for this event, it really warms the heart," Richardson said.
