HHS cheerleaders selected for Shrine Children’s Hospital fundraiser in Butte
By Julie O’Dell, HHS Cheerleading Coach
Three Hardin cheerleaders have been selected to perform at the Montana East West Shrine Game on Saturday, July 16 in Butte, Mont. The senior cheerleaders are: Alexandria Bush, Terra Chavez and Jordynn Paz. They were selected to cheer for this event because they have been responsible, hardworking, honest citizens and because of their inspiration to others as cheerleaders at Hardin High School.
The East West Shrine game is a major fundraiser for the Shrine Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Wash. The Shrine Children’s Hospital provides free medical care to children 18 years and younger. Shrine hospitals specialize in spinal cord injury/defects, burn trauma, orthopedics, and cleft lip and palate defects.
At the East West Shrine game, the girls will be given a chance to show their cheerleading abilities, cheer with the best cheerleaders from all over the state of Montana and inspire others with their enthusiasm for cheerleading. They also will be offering their support to children all over the northwestern United Sates with the opportunity to receive free medical treatment and care.
The East West Cheer Squad participates in many activities over the three days the girls will be in Butte. Some of those activities include practice for the game, posing for professional photographs, making appearances to promote the game, attending a banquet with the players and families, holding a kid’s camp, participating in a parade and, of course, cheering for the game.
The girls have expressed their gratitude to all of the community members who helped them succeed in their own fundraising activities and for supporting them as Hardin Bulldog cheerleaders.
