Rory Halbert was recognized at a University of Indianapolis women’s soccer game recently as part of TeamIMPACT, a program which allows children with serious illnesses to become an honorary member of a college team. Rory was recognized at halftime, as she is graduating from the program. The team wore green to show support for Rory’s battle with autoimmune encephalitis and donations at the gate supported the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance.
