Jen Celebrates Year Number Six!

Jennifer L, a Cheer New York flyer, celebrates her 6th year with the team this January. Jen came to the New York area in April of 2002, but it wasn't until January of 2003 that she learned of an adult cheerleading squad called Cheer New York. After learning the tryout clinics were that day, she showed up in her work clothes with an old pair of sneakers, not sure to expect. It had been a good five years since she had cheered, but after a few days of extreme soreness, she was a cheerleader once again!

Since that day Jen has witnessed many members come and go from Cheer New York, including administration and uniform changes, and she has seen this organization grow from a few to many. At one point she was one of only two women on the entire squad! She has watched the squad push itself to stunt harder and continues to be amazed by all of the charity work CNY performs.

Jen has plans to continue to cheer for as long as physically possible, which, at 33, is hopefully still far away! She feels so great about having spent the past six years with such a wonderful organization that has become a huge part of her life.
