Scott Cole from Athletic Championships sent the following email and asked us to share it with everyone. He also wanted us to let everyone know more information about Cheer for Wishes will be available in June.
Gym Owners and Directors,
Athletic Championships and Make-A-Wish Foundation have been working very hard during the off season to create a competition that will not only be special to the athletes that compete that weekend but also to children with life threatening illnesses who by the power of a wish will give them hope, strength and joy.
If you have ever been to a Make-A-Wish event, such as Walk-for-Wishes, then you might be familiar with their online donation pages served by the individual teams that make them up. Our idea is that each gym will have a donation page which team members can join now. Kids, Parents, Grandparents and Friends can all donate to the gyms donation page to reach your gym goal which you can set yourself. From the day that you set up your gym donation page, you will have until November 21, 2010 to donate to that page..
Athletic challenges you to join us in making this event a very special one for Make-A-Wish Foundation, your gym and the kids that will be touched by your donations. Athletic will be donating 100% of the $5 admission to Make a Wish Foundation during the event on top of your donations through your gym.
We would like to thank you in advance for supporting us in making this “Cheer for Wishes” event one to remember in the history of Make-A-Wish and in the Cheerleading industry.
The event will be held on November 21, 2010 at the Georgia International Convention Center. For more information about the event and if you’re interested in your team being a part of this event, please feel free to contact me anytime. My cell phone is below.
