Support SHU Cheerleading Alumni, Friends, and Family Campaign!
About Our Campaign
As a proud members of the Sacred Heart University Cheerleading program, we are actively participating in a campaign to raise critical funds for our program, which serves as a yearly team effort. This year our team is striving to raise a total of $10,000 in 30 days – so I am kindly asking you to make a gift in support of SHU Cheerleading today!
The Cheerleading program can’t thank everyone enough for their support last season, from our 2016-17 fundraising campaign to attending and supporting us all year at athletics contests. Last year’s fundraising dollars were instrumental in the overall success of our program. The gifts you contributed went towards new uniforms (30), new warm-ups (60), and our trip to nationals. Our fundraising dollars also went towards transportation to and from the airport for nationals and local competitions. Each contribution that is made has a positive and direct impact on both me and my teammates and for that we thank you!
This year, your gift will help ensure that our program has the necessary resources to compete at the Division I level. Your gift will also enable our coaching staff to subsidize various costs associated with the UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team Nationals Championship in Orlando, Florida from January 12-14, 2018. The nationals trip is a top priority for our program that includes various fees such as hotels, flights, meals, transportation, and team bonding experiences. To learn more about the fees associated with nationals, please visit our fundraising campaign website listed below!
About Our Team
This season we’re looking forward to a special opportunity to build on last season’s success. One major highlight from last season is that our white squad placed first at our local competition and another highlight is that we were one of the top five highest teams (placing fourth of 32 teams!) in total number of community service hours logged. In addition, our team combined for a 3.12 GPA overall, keeping in mind that we have the largest roster for all women’s sports at SHU! With all of that said, the 2017-18 year looks promising and we’re ready to work hard and stay focused on our individual and team goals ahead.
For the third straight year, our athletic department received the Northeast Conference Institutional Academic Award with 32 teams combining for a 3.381 GPA. The Institutional Academic Award completed the trifecta of conference honors for our athletic department, as we also captured the Brenda Weare Commissioner's Cup and the NEC Building Communities Award. This marks the second year in a row that we have won all three awards! Needless to say, I am truly proud to represent Sacred Heart University and have high expectations for the future of our program.
On behalf of our student-athletes, coaches, and administrators, thank you so much for your generosity and support of SHU Cheerleading. We hope to see you at some athletic contests this upcoming season!
