BELMONT —Belmont High School seniors Laura Davies and Cassie Contigiani chose to focus on the promotion of Unified Sports for their senior projects, a required assignment for all high school seniors.
Laura's project focuses on raising awareness about the benefits of Unified sports and developing a "Band of Bears" to participate in the High School Winni-Dip, an annual fundraising event for Special Olympics New Hampshire. Cassie's project was the development and coordination of the First Annual Unified Basketball Jamboree- the first of its kind in the state of New Hampshire.
The girls collaborate in their efforts and are celebrating their successes this season with their Band of Bears – teammates, students and faculty volunteers – who will participate in the High School Winni-Dip on Sunday, March 15 at noon at the Margate Resort. Fundraising efforts yielded in excess of a combined $2,500 to promote unified sports programs, but that outcome only scratches the surface. The best outcomes are still in the making with more Belmont students feeling positive, included, and participating in the spirit of sportsmanship and unity.
People can join Laura and Cassie to learn more about these efforts through the following:
• Observe the Winni-Dip parade as fundraising teams march in costume
• Catch the Belmont "Band of Bears" jumping into Winnipesaukee together in team spirit (look for the team in purple shirts with TEAM LAURA on the back)
• Watch Cassie and Laura presenting their combined fundraising proceeds via large scale check to Special Olympics New Hampshire
• View the video of Laura and Cassie which illustrates positive impact of unified sports and social inclusion.
• Listen to their speech and presentations of awards, along with many other exciting activities.
Laura Davies is a basketball player on Belmont's Unified team, a downhill skier on Team Gunstock, manager of the Belmont girls' varsity basketball and softball teams.
Cassie Contigiani is an Assistant Coach for the Belmont Unified Team, and team captain and three sport varsity athlete (soccer, basketball and softball).
Both girls are members of the Future Business Leaders of America and the Class of 2015 at Belmont High School.
