A Message From Cat and Ellis's Plunge for awareness

Hello! Our names are Catherine O'Rourke and Ellis Honea, we are two 16 year old students at Mount Saint Charles Academy, in Woonsocket,RI. The idea to participate in this plunge first came to us when we were assigned a service project in our religion class, but it immediately became so much more than that. Together, our goal is to not only raise money for SORI, but awareness, and show how important it is for everyone to have the chance to participate in opportunities like sports and feel the support of a team, along with the ability to form genuine, and meaningful connections. For me personally, SORI has been embedded in my life for as long as I can remember. My very close family has been heavily involved in the organization, both as athletes and as coaches. Because of this, I have been able to witness, firsthand, the positive impact that it has made on so many athletes, and families within Rhode Island. I could not think of a better organization to be involved in, or share support to. This organization is something very near to our hearts, and we will greatly appreciate anything you can provide to help support it :)
