This girl’s got pep!

Meet Kelsey– future cheerleader/wrestler!

One thing that’s for sure is Kelsey is a go-getter. This girl loves cheerleading and wrestling and isn’t about to let obstacles stand in her way of perusing her passion. Full of smiles and vibrant energy, she was recently honored as a special guest at a Pitt basketball game against Virginia Tech where she got to meet her Connecting Champions role model, Kathleen, for the very first time! Kelsey’s special day included getting to meet and hang out with the team before the game, being announced as the guest of honor, and even cheering with the squad during the game! We know this is the start of a very special friendship and we are so excited to see these two take on the world!

The pandemic showed many people what social isolation is really like. It also showed there are many other great ways to connect. That’s why we launched our activity kits. These mailed out packages provide fun activities for our mentors and kids/young adults to do together — virtually.
