Dalton: Cheerleaders join Dana-Farber fund drive

The Wahconah Regional High School cheerleading team is participating in the annual Cheer for Dana-Farber fundraiser, supporting patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

Participating teams fundraise in their local communities through car washes, bake sales, canister collections, and similar activities. The Wahconah cheerleaders will fundraise through November.

Each team that raises $1,000 or more will be entered to win the grand prize: a chance to perform a cheer routine prior to a New England Patriots home game. Four teams will be chosen.

For each additional $1,000 raised, teams earn an additional ticket entered into the drawing. The top five fundraising teams will be invited to a special cheer clinic run by the Patriots Cheerleaders.
