Rain prevented attendees from seeing the sun's shadow on the sculpture of 10-year-old Maura Donnelly in .

Every year at 10 a.m. on June 26, the shadow of the running girl perfectly aligns with the base of the statue.

The sculpture was created by artist Don Wiegand in 1988. It was installed in the park on June 26, 1999.

The group was invited to tour Wiegan's studio and museum in Chesterfield Valley after learning more about the sculpture.
