Swishes for Wishes raises nearly $10,000

Mount Pleasant Junior-Senior High School recently hosted the annual Swishes For Wishes. The game was very close, with Southmoreland’s cheerleaders losing by 6 points to Mount Pleasant. Despite the outcome of the game, members of both teams were pleased with the amount of money raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which raises money to grant a wish for a child with a serious illness.

“The game was very close and exciting to play in,” said sophomore Colby Cain.  “We had a lot of fun with Mount Pleasant’s girls. Both teams played all in good fun.”

Between both squads selling tickets, raffling off baskets, and scheduling food vendors, Southmoreland and Mount Pleasant cheerleaders raised $9,542 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“This feeling is better than no other,” said senior cheer captain Zoe Carson. “Every girl on the squad is very excited about raising so much money to help a child grant their wish.”

Cheer coach Susan Johnson agreed.

“Knowing that we helped make someone’s life a little bit easier warms our hearts,” Mrs. Johnson said.
