The La Verne Community Cheer program has plenty to shout about. Not only are the cheerleaders, from the Tinkerbells to the teens in the program, partnering with Cheer For A Cure®, the nation’s largest grassroots network of cheerleaders, coaches and supporting fans dedicated to preventing cancer and saving lives, they are sporting new vibrant pink uniforms that will be season standouts wherever the girls travel.
“We just decided to go for it,” said Dana O’Donnell, the cheer advisor. The girls’ uniforms used to be Bearcat green.
In their new uniforms, the La Verne Community Cheer team will participate in the Universal Studios Hollywood CFAC Championship to be held Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012 at Universal Studios Hollywood as well as other events throughout their season.
“We pride ourselves with having the only cheer program in the area with a senior level coaching staff certified with the American Association Cheerleading Coaches & Administrators – National Safety Certification Program,” O’Donnell said. “This includes teaching proper form in cheerleading technique.
“We also have the best high school tryout percentage in the area,” O’Donnell added. “Last year, nine of our 11 girls made their high school dance/cheerleading squads.”
And now wearing pink and partnering with a Cheer For A Cure®, the girls just might be unbeatable. The Stella Bertz Cheer For A Cure®, was established in 2005 and has since grown into a national, community-based non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds in an effort to impact the lives of those who have been touched by cancer.
