14th Annual “Cheers From The Heart”


In 1999, the Wells High School Cheerleaders established “Cheers From The Heart,” a charity benefit cheerleading competition. Since 1999, “Cheers From The Heart” has donated over $112,000 to local charities and children in need. Charities include: Seeds of Peace, Camp Sunshine, March of Dimes, Camp Meridian, Maine Children’s Cancer Program and Kids Free to Grow. This year, competitions will be held at three locations: Marshwood High School, Oxford Hills High School and Lawrence High School. These events will take place on Saturday, February 4, at 11am.

Admission is $5 per adult and $3 per student/child. New to this year’s event is a reduced admission fee (by $1) with the donation of a non-perishable food item—teams who bring 10 non-perishable food items will receive $10 off their registration fee. All food collected will be donated to local food pantries. All locations will also accept pet food donations for the local humane society. Save a dollar and help keep food on the table for others in the community, as well as their pets.
