Johnson Cheerleaders reach out to the Community
On the morning of September 30th, the Johnson Cheerleaders were on hand at Heroes Stadium to help cheer on the participants in the National Down Syndrome Society 10th annual Buddy Walk. The event was established in 1995 to promote acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome. Freshman cheerleader, Logan Kingry, said “it was a life changing experience for me!” The Buddy Walk raised over $150,000 that will benefit the families affected by Down syndrome living in the San Antonio community.
Earlier in September, in honor of the firefighters lost in the 9/11 attacks, both the JV and Varsity squads prepared and delivered a spaghetti and meatball dinner for two local fire stations. Cheerleader Kaitlyn Hamilton said, “ They constantly risk their lives for our community and it was nice to be able to show our appreciation and gratitude with a simple meal.” Caitlin McGrath added, “We really enjoy doing this for the fire fighters each year. They also let us tour the fire station and teach us a little bit about how the fire equipment works. They even let us try on their fire suits!” Thanks to fire stations 46 and 14 for keeping our community safe.
