Shrewsbury – Cheerleaders from Shrewsbury High School are participating in the second annual Cheer for Dana-Farber fundraiser, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Shrewsbury High School cheerleaders are fundraising until Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.
To participate in Cheer for Dana-Farber, cheerleading teams fundraise in their local communities through car washes, bake sales, canister collections and more. There is no minimum fundraising requirement, but teams are required to register.
All teams that raise $1,000 or more will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize – a chance to perform a cheerleading routine during the pre-game show Dec. 28 at the New England Patriots game against the Buffalo Bills. Each additional $1,000 raised earns teams an additional ticket entered into the drawing. The top five fundraising teams will be invited to a special cheer clinic Saturday, Dec. 20, run by the New England Patriots cheerleaders at the Dana-Farber Field House at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.
In 2013, more than 85 teams raised nearly $70,000. To support the Shrewsbury High School cheerleaders, visit www.cheerfordanafarber.org/2014/shrewsburyhighschool.
