Grace Cup June 3rd

Mon, 29 May 2017 07:50:30 CDT

The 2017 Grace Cup will be held on Saturday, June 3, at 6

p.m. at RHSA Field in Raymond. The third annual all-star

game for senior soccer players. Thirty four players from

12 different Class 1A high schools will participate.

The event is named after Grace Herschelman, the five-year-

old daughter of Mary and Kyle Herschelman of Hillsboro, who

is battling a rare genetic disorder called Infantile

Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD). The degenerative disorder

causes deterioration in the nerves and keeps children from

things like walking and talking. There are no cures or

treatments for INAD and most children with the disease

don't make it past their tenth birthday.

There is no admission fee, but donations will be accepted.

All proceeds from the game will go to help fund research

looking for a cure for INAD. The Grace Cup has raised over

$2,000 for a drug treatment study at Washington University

in St. Louis, with the Herschelman family raising of nearly

$150,000 for INAD research.
