Los Gatos High School “Cheer For a Cure”
The Los Gatos High School Cheer Team has been participating in the “Spirit on the Course” competition at the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon for the past seven years. Each and every year, they are one of the participant favorites and know how to bring the ENERGY–strength in numbers and LOUD voices!
This year, LGHS took home the Spirit on the Course title and a cash prize of $1,000. But donning their stand-out pink tees on race day with their phrase “Cheer for a Cure”, their winnings were not going to new uniforms and pom poms. Instead, they have donated ALL of their prize money over the years to fund breast cancer research.
The selflessness from this squad is incredible, and we’ve never seen smiles that BIG from anyone waking up at 6 in the morning. However you can show your support–by stopping by an LGHS football or basketball game this winter, or by some extra big high-fives and thank you’s while running by them on the course next year, give the LGHS Cheer Team some LOVE for the LOVE they are showing to breast cancer research!
