In celebration of Black History Month and Girls and Women in Sports Day, WWE Superstar Bianca Belair met one of her heroes, Olympic Gold Medalist and track-and-field athlete Jackie-Joyner Kersee.
Joyner-Kersee is the founder of St. Louis' Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center. The foundation aims to instill youth in the Greater East St. Louis area with the dream, drive and determination necessary to succeed in academics, athletics and leadership.
Through work and a commitment to ensuring every youth is given the opportunity to achieve greatness, the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation has grown to become a safe haven and learning-rich environment for area youth. Where the challenges and limitations of one of America’s most notoriously deadly and impoverished cities will never define where a child can go, or who they can become.
