Kylon Penn is a student-athlete in Frankfort, who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 13. It is an auto-immune disease that can not be prevented and currently, there is no cure.
Kylon is raising money for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) by combing two things he enjoys: helping others and baseball.
Kylon along with his teammates will be hosting a baseball tournament to raise money and awareness.
The tournament will take place May 18-19th at State Stadium in Frankfort.
