The Husson University Cheerleaders helped out this past weekend at the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
The cheerleading team has participated in the Race for the Cure over the past several years as a way to show their support in the community.
“The Race for the Cure is held very near and dear to our hearts, for breast cancer has unfortunately affected so many lives,” said Head Cheer Coach Buffie McCue.
The cheerleading team cheers on the racers and sure as "cureleaders" by yelling chants like “Start the fight by living right, I am the Cure." The cheer team helped with the warm up, and then proceeded to the starting line to greet the finishers.
“They received the most satisfaction when they were cheering at the finish line as the survivors crossed, it is such an inspiration for young ladies and a great promise of hope,” McCue added, “We will continue to support the cause in years to come and we have great hope for a cure for future generations.”
“It is heart warming to see survivors coming to the finish line knowing they beat cancer and to have other runners supporting the cause,” said senior captain Danielle Gough, “I am proud to be part of the team cheering at the finish line for everyone’s hard work and dedication.”
