The Mehlville School District is hosting its third Portrait of a Graduate Speaker Series, a special screening of the film “Delivering Hope” Wednesday, Feb. 16, at Nottelmann Auditorium, 3200 Lemay Ferry Road at 6:30 p.m.

The film was produced by Mehlville School District Alumni Hall of Fame member Kevin Kline and his wife Trish Kline. Kevin graduated from Oakville High School in 1988. 

The film is a documentary about Kevin’s attempt to become the first person in history to run the northernmost 300 miles of Alaska’s dangerous Dalton Highway, in winter, to raise awareness for children battling pediatric cancer. Traversing the world’s 10th most dangerous road, Kline and his crew faced a hostile environment of temperatures 40 degrees below zero on a road made of ice in near total darkness to run an 8-pound backpack full of childhood cancer names to the virtual top of the world. When Kline’s body shut down after 200 miles, the crew was faced with a life-changing dilemma.

The event is free, but tickets are required in advance and can be reserved at www.eventbrite.com/e/movie-screening-of-delivering-hope-tickets-251277767567.
