EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Pop Warner Angels cheerleading team is competing at the national competition in Florida this December after winning first place at a competition in New Jersey on Saturday.
They are a team of co-ed cheerleaders with special needs, ranging from physical to intellectual disabilities.
They are not only about cheerleading, but they also focus on their friendships, pride, happiness, and building their confidence.
The Pop Warner Angels compete at football games and competitions throughout the Capital Region.
Due to support needs and travel expenses, the cheerleading team is raising funds to help cover some of the costs and make it possible for adult traveling companions to attend.
They say a donation will fund 20 scholarships of up to $1,000 to defray the costs of flights, hotels and meals.
If you’d like to help, you can make a donation to their GoFundMe page.
