Winthrop B. Reed, III, Tracy Mathis Break Ground at YMCA Adaptive Sports Complex Ceremony

Lewis Rice members Winthrop B. (“Win”) Reed, III  and Tracy Mathis broke ground today on a new YMCA Adaptive Sports Complex on the campus of the South County YMCA alongside members from the St. Louis Cardinals and Cardinals Care, the Gateway Region YMCA, Boniface Foundation, and Miracle League. With a fully accessible Miracle League baseball field, playground, soccer field, and running track, the $5.2 million state-of-the-art complex will give children who have physical or cognitive disabilities the opportunity to safely participate in a variety of sports.

“Through this partnership, we seek to remove the barriers that keep children with disabilities out of sports and to let them experience the joys of being an athlete," said Win, who serves as Chairman of the Board of the Boniface Foundation. "Together, we can provide an environment that gives children of all abilities an opportunity to play on a team, make new friends, build self-esteem, and make lasting childhood memories.”
