MJW 6th Grade Cheer State Fund

We need your help to “pay their way to State!”

There is a group of 15 hardworking young girls heading to the IRCA State Championship in December and we need your help to pay their entrance fees which total $2,025.  We must raise this amount before Thanksgiving, November 23.

The McHenry Junior Warriors 6th Grade Cheerleading Squad have won their bid to the IRCA State Championship tournament after taking first place in their first two competitions this fall.

In October, the team of 15 girls scored 78.7 out of a 100 possible points at the Opening Day Competition at Dundee Crown High School to take first place and secure their spot at State.  At the Cheer Rock Competition at McHenry High School West, the girls took home a score of 83.8 further enhancing their season with their first place win. 

 (To show you how very hard these girls are working…a score between 70-80 is good, and a score of 80-100 is great for their age group!!! How crazy is that?!?!)

The team is being coached by Dan and Debbie Jensen, who have been a part of MJW Cheer for over four years.  Their passion and dedication to the girls has been evident all season long as they worked hard alongside the girls to perfect each team member’s role.

To prepare for State, this group of 11-12-year-old girls continue their rigorous practice schedule, spending up to 7 hours each week perfecting their routine and stunts.  Come December they will have dedicated nearly 100 hours practicing together, which doesn’t even include the two additional competitions they are performing in this November—Cheer Revolution and the Final Fling Competition. 

The amount of sweat, bruises and sore muscles these girls have powered through is amazing for their age.  They have formed a tightly-knit group of friends who are there for each other.  Your support of their goals would mean the world to them!
