A Message From Oliveia Shaughnessy

Hello. My name is Liv. I have been involved with Unified Programs for about 5 years now. I am on the Unified Volleyball, and Unified Basketball team and I am also the co-chair of SORI Youth Activation Committee.This year I will be doing a polar plunge with my unified volleyball team in March 2022. The past years, I have made so many amazing friendships and gained so many positive experiences and opportunities from the EGHS unified program and from Special Olympics. This campaign means alot to me because with the fundraising we do, we are able to have more supports and opportunities for our athletes.
