NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — On Sunday, 18 thrill-seekers took to the skies over Newport to raise money for the Dorian J. Murray Foundation, which seeks to fund pediatric cancer research and raise awareness about the disease. Among them was Dorian’s mother, Melissa Murray, who took the leap in honor of her son and to support the pediatric cancer foundation she founded in 2016.

State Representative Robert Nardollilo also joined Murray’s family and friends in skydiving to raise money for the foundation. According to Representative Nardollilo’s office, $4,000 was raised for the Dorian J. Murray Foundation.
