Hi, we’re Sriya Pokala and Kinley Schade, and we are seniors at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri. We started our journey by founding a club in at our school in that promotes inclusivity within the special education classrooms at the elementary school level in 2019. As our grew, we became even more connected to our cause and decided to create a website to help raise money for different adaptive sports programs in our local area. We slowly expanded our mission to the multi-state organization that it is now. With our goals in mind, we became a 501c3 non-profit organization. We hope to continue to make a difference in our community taking one step at a time!
