Fedorowicz said their last regional win in the Poconos since 2012 was when a team of Saucon Valley cheerleaders competed at the regular level in a cheerleading competition.
“And for the first time, … they got a bid to the most prestigious high school cheerleading competition in America,” she said.
To fund their trip, the group is currently fundraising through a GoFundMe page created by Fedorowicz. Their goal is to raise $10,000 through crowdfunding, and to find additional financial support from local sponsors. As of December 13, the GoFundMe campaign had raised nearly $800 and several levels of sponsorships were available.
