EHS Sparkle Special Athlete Cheer

$17,475 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 327 people in 16 months
New Berlin Eisenhower High School Sparkle Cheer Team has been invited to perform during the ICU World Championships to demonstrate the important Special Abilities Unified Division to the 80 nations in attendance to further promote this important and inclusive initiative.

Additionally, at this time there is a possibility that we could be chosen as the official US National Team is the newly created Special Athlete Unified Division. The selection process and final decisions will happen in the coming weeks.

About Us – The Sparkle team was formed in October 2017 after a varsity cheerleader asked how some of the girls she knew at school who loved to cheer could be included on a cheer team. Their special abilities and cognitive delays prevented them from participating with the varsity team, yet they wanted to be a part of the program. After much discussion with the high school, the athletic department and interested students the program launched under the Faculty Guidance of Jody Brill, Special Education Assistant. Jody is a former cheerleader and cheer judge. This cheer history helped to bring our group to the attention of the ICU.

The girls are all excited about traveling to Florida for the big performance. Since the program is so new, we have no built up funds to help us with this trip. ICU is offering some support once we get to the venue, but transportation, food, uniforms, bow and other items all fall to the Sparkle team to provide.
Please help us raise the needed funds to make this trip possible. Any amount will help us get closer to our goal and make our dreams come true. We will be traveling to Florida in April.

Our team showcases our individual talents and abilities and is proud to be a UNITED TEAM.

Two days until the team leaves for Florida. Everyone is so excited. We are so amazed and thankful for all of the support. We have been able to provide more than we ever imagined to make this the best experience ever. Because of the outpouring of support we are able to provide transportation, lodging, and uniforms and practice wear. Additionally each girl will have meal plans good for 2 meals daily and funds to pay for a third meal and snacks. Special extras such as gift cards to purchase souvenirs and treats and trinkets for the plane ride were also possible because of the generosity of family, friends and strangers.

Thank you to all who continue to support our athletes. We promise to represent the USA to the very best of our UNIFIED ABILITIES!
