Mastic Beach, NY - January 7, 2019 - The William Floyd High School varsity cheerleading team led by head coach Alyssa Cabrera recently earned second place and a $1,500 grant in the Team Up 4 Community “Long Island Holiday Sports Heroes Video Challenge” for raising $1,000 for the Stony Brook Lung Cancer Center and for volunteering at a local Head Start program. The grant will be awarded at the organization’s end-of-year dinner in May 2019.
 
In an email to Coach Cabrera announcing the award Team Up 4 Community Executive Director, Teresa Webb, said, “Thank you again for sharing the great work you and the girls have continuously done to help make a difference for others! It is inspiring work and we thank you for your community impact!”
 
This will be the third year in a row that the William Floyd varsity cheerleading program has received a grant from Team Up 4 Community. In 2016, they finished in first place thanks to their work in raising funds and awareness for Rett Syndrome. In 2017, they finished in second place due to raising $1,500 for New York Cancer and Blood Specialists.
 
The team has also started their season off strong with two top-three finishes in their first two events. “We are on the road to hopefully make the Suffolk County Championship again this year. The girls are determined and working hard,” said Coach Cabrera.
