Happy Birthday Cameo!!

Today is Cameo's Birthday!

Cameo is one of our newest newbies and absolutely wowed judges at the January Cheer New York try-outs with her reenactment of a scene from
Bring It On. Though she came onto the team as a base, she looks so beautiful in the air everyone keeps pushing her to be a flier. And trust us, she is up for the challenge.

What can we say "She's sexy, she's cute, she's popular to boot!" Happy Birthday Cameo! We are so happy to have you on the team.

Happy Birthday Gray!!

To continue our slew of February is Gray's Birthday!!

Gray was one of the eleven newbies that were welcomed on to Cheer New York this past summer. Though Gray was new to the cheerleading world, his amazing determination and passion have made him a perfect fit for the team. His sweet personality and upbeat attitude are only a few of his wonderful characteristics.

So, Happy Birthday Gray! We are so glad to have you as a part of our family!

Happy Birthday Tiffany M!!

Today is our co-captain Tiffany M's birthday! This is our third administration birthday this month which can only mean there must be a link between Feb babies and great leaders.

Tiff M, has been a key part of Cheer NY since she joined in 2007. During her non-cheer hours she is a teacher so keeping all of the wild and crazy "kids" of CNY in line is right up her alley! Tiffany has the experience, talent and patience to be a great co-captain and an extremely valued member of Cheer New York.

Send her all your warmest wishes but don't worry we'll make sure to give her some extra B-day spankings (just for you!) at practice tonight.

Happy Birthday Tiff M!!

CNY Rocks the Jocks!

Cheer New York dropped by the The 3rd Annual Jock-A-Thon (Co-sponsored by the Men Event, Out of Bounds and Team NY) Wednesday Jan 28, to rub elbows with their fellow jocks. Hundreds of GLBT athletes convened at Dave and Busters in Times Square to network, recruit and just enjoy cocktails and camaraderie. Representatives from CNY got the chance to catch up with our friends from the Gay Hockey Association, the Gotham Knights rugby team, the New York Ramblers soccer team, Gotham Volleyball, Team New York Aquatics, Metropolitan Tennis Group, the Front Runners and so many more.

Diego T., Brian W. and Scott W. made cameo appearances, on their way to Wednesday night's practice. They left alumni Teddy A. and Manny C. in charge of representing the team. They collected the numbers of more than a dozen potential recruits to CNY!

A gallery of other pics can be found here.

Happy Birthday Felipe!!

Today is our fearless leader's birthday!

Felipe has been a part of Cheer New York since day one and was strong, brave, and passionate enough to take over the role of director when CNY was at it's lowest. There isn't much else to say but, Look at us now!!

With a team of almost 40 members Felipe Does. It. All. From uniforms to marketing to finding a practice space with at least 20 foot high ceilings in Manhattan (close to impossible!).

It is hard to put our gratitude into words and though we may not always tell you how grateful we truly are...we love you Cheer Papi! Happy Birthday!

Raymund continuously impresses and inspires all of the members of Cheer New York with his dedication, talent and huge heart. And CNY isn't the only organization to get a helping hand from Raymund. He also dedicates his time to The Trevor Project, an around the clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
