Legacy Cottage: Puma Cheer was very honored to be asked to be a sponsoring partner, with 6 other gyms, in the Legacy Hospice Porch Project by Billy Smith and Spirit Celebration. Our AMAZING cheer parents and kids collected enough materials, (Pillows, comforters, towels, curtains, etc….) to help fill one of 7 rooms at the Hospice in Oak Cliff. The room we sponsored will be decorated in our gym colors. We were room #1 and had the first room completed. This hospice has helped AIDS patients who have no family or friends transition with dignity through their death. Established in 1975 they have seven rooms that have been filled, and have a waiting list and just need some TLC. Our Puma Parents went above and beyond and supplied many wish list gifts that will benefit every resident at the hospice. At Puma Cheer, we teach more than just cheer. Our coaching staff and our cheer parents work very hard together to make sure our athletes are provided opportunities to be socially aware and have many chances to give back to our communities. Spirit Celebration and Billy Roy Smith gave us an opportunity to showcase to our kids how to have an #attitudeofgratitude. And our Puma family got to reinforce to our Pride the values that we ALL hold dear in our gym are demonstrated by our actions and not just words. This is one example why Puma Cheer is a very special place. Until you walk through our doors, you can’t really grasp how for some, it takes a village. For us, it takes a Pride: a Puma Pride! #pumapridelivesinside If you want to donate please go to GoFundMe Legacy Porch Project.
