Past Projects

2010-2011 SPIRIT HEROES:  Pro Spirit went way out of control on this one.  Pro Spirit partnered up with Heroes for Children (http://www.heroesforchildren.org).  Heroes was co-founded by Larissa Linton, a mother of a PS athlete.  Our first event was the Heroes for Children 5k.  Our initial goal was $10000.  With the help of family and industry friends, Pro Spirit destroyed the original goal by raising over $26000!  Over 200 athletes and family member participated in the run.  Pro Spirit won the award for largest team and largest donation!  Coach Jeff, Trey and Zack participated in the Hold' em for Heroes poker event.  Coach Diana participated in the Heroes and Handbags event.  Pro Spirit also "adopted" four families that had children with cancer for Christmas.  We wanted to make sure that the families had a wonderful, bountiful Christmas.


2009-2010 Keep the World Green: Pro Spirit established a recycling program at the gym.



2008-2009 Breast Cancer Awareness: Pro Spirit raised over $35000 for breast cancer research by participating in the Susan G Komen 5k and also had a team walk in the Susan G Komen 3 Day Walk. The team walked 60 miles over the 3 days. In the spring, 58 athletes, mothers, sisters and friends cut off a minimum of 8.5 inches of their hair and donated it to Beautiful Lengths. Because of the efforts of the athletes and parents, Pro Spirit was the first ever recipient of the USASF Chairman's Cup Award. Jeff and Diana accepted the award for the gym at the VIP Reception at the 2009 Cheerleading Worlds.


2007-2008 Adopt a Soldier Campaign: Pro Spirit teams adopted 12 soldiers that were stationed throughout the world. Each soldier had a tie to PS in some form, whether it was a brother or sister, son or daughter to someone in our gym. Each soldier was sent care packages, letters and pictures thoughout the year in thanks for serving and protecting the USA. The care packages were not just meant for the individual, they were huge boxes with enough for the soldier and many, many friends. It was a tremendous experience for all. The kids received letters and pictures back from not only the apopted soldiers, but others serving with them. Pro Spirit also recieved something special. One of the adopted soldiers that was serving in Iraq, told his commanding officer about what our cheerleaders did. In turn that officer went to his commanding officer and so on. Pro Spirit was awarded a US flag that was flown over one of the command centers in Iraq. It was presented to the gym where it was received with many tears of pride and joy.
