With the help of the Claremore High School Cheer and Dance team, the Claremore Youth Football Association Cheer staff recently hosted a community cheer clinic to benefit Roosa Elementary student Trinity Woodward. CYFA and benefit sponsors raised more than $2,000 for Woodward and her family.
Woodward underwent surgery earlier this year to remove a brain tumor.
“After six extensive surgeries, Trinity is back at home and continues to improve with therapy,” said Roosa Elementary Teacher Mary Kropp. “The surgeries have caused one side of her face to lower and she now needs a trach tube to talk, but she is walking and overall healthy.”
Kropp said Woodward will return to Roosa next year.
“The benefit clinic was a success. Participants really enjoyed the choreography and instruction from the high school cheerleaders and dance team.”
Sponsors included- Little Caesars, Walmart, Brad’s Boat Sales, Uniquely Yours, Reasors, Cherry Berry and Winner’s Circle Trophies.
Donations for Trinity Woodward can be dropped off at any RCB Bank location.
