Did you notice all of the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) t-shirts worn by Upper School students on Friday, April 26? That was the hope of Aspen Stevanovski ’16, when she decided to bring the Sport A Shirt, Share A Night event to Cannon School.
Taking the Class of 2016’s service project to a new level, Aspen organized an effort to provide all Upper School students and faculty with their own RMH t-shirts to help raise awareness for the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte and its mission.
Aspen spent time gathering the names and sizes for everyone in the Upper School and then organized them and made flyers to hand out to each advisory group.
“RMH is an awesome organization, and the fact that Cannon can be a part of it makes it even better,” shared Aspen.
The Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte is a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children who are receiving medical treatment from either the Levine Children’s Hospital or Hemby Children’s Hospital. The Sport A Shirt, Share A Night event is done annually to raise money for the families staying at the home.
“I really like working with kids, and this is one project I could do that allowed me to help children,” said Aspen.
Thank you to all of the Cougars who wore their shirts on April 26 and helped raise awareness of such a great cause. For more information about RMH, visit www.rmhofcharlotte.org.
