Photos from the 2015 Cheer for Dana-Farber clinic and performance.
Local cheerleading squads around New England rallied their communities to help raise funds for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston as part of the Cheer for Dana-Farber program. The top nine fundraising teams won the opportunity to attend a clinic hosted by the entire Patriots Cheerleading squad. The top teams included Wakefield Warriors High School, Southington Valley Midget Football League, Shrewsbury High School Varsity Cheerleading, Shrewsbury High School JV Cheerleading, Southington High School Blue Knight Cheerleaders, Sharon High School, Milton Junior Wildcats, Melrose Youth Cheer, Marshfield Varsity Cheer and Marshfield JV Cheer. The teams had a great time at the clinic which consisted of various breakout groups including stunting, tumbling, dance, cheer, physical fitness and team building. The day was highlighted with a performance by the Patriots Cheerleaders and concluded with performances from each of the teams in attendance.
The fun didn't stop there! Each team that raised more than $1,000 was entered to win the Grand Prize – the chance to perform prior to a New England Patriots home game. Four teams were selected including Elite AllStars, Georgetown Varsity Cheer, Shrewsbury High School Cheerleading and Sharon High School. The four teams took the field in front of thousands at Gillette Stadium prior to the Patriots home game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, December 20.
The Patriots Cheerleaders commend these youth cheer teams on their amazing fundraising efforts as part of the Cheer for Dana-Farber program.
