The deadline is down to the wire and Italy track star Kortnei Johnson is several hundred dollars short of the amount needed to attend the event. One of the favorites in the race, Kortnei’s competition is hoping she will not be able to attend. Therefore, we are urging the fans to get involved and submit donations A.S.A.P. with the race 7 days away.
