The Cathedral Catholic High School junior varsity cheerleading squad put a special spin on its winter team-building party, turning it into an event to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Planned by freshman cheerleader Olivia Scott, a Carmel Valley resident, the girls were encouraged to bring toys and school supplies to their Nov. 26 party held at The Grand Del Mar.

The goal was to get 70 items to fill backpacks for the Make-A-Wish Foundation children. Make-A-Wish “grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories.”

“It’s just what our school does and it’s what our cheer team does, ” Olivia said of Cathedral Catholic’s charity efforts. “It’s the time of year when everyone should be thinking about giving back.”

The cheer team got involved with Make-a-Wish earlier this year when they helped greet a child named Michael whose wish was to go to Legoland. The JV and varsity cheer squads went out to give him a big welcome at the airport.

Keeping in mind that as part of the Macy’s “Believe” campaign, Macy’s donates $1 to Make-a-Wish (up to $1 million) for every letter to Santa May receives through Dec. 24, the girls also took time during their party to pen a note to the man in red.

Olivia encourages others to take part in Macy’s campaign and write a letter to Santa to support Make-A-Wish. To learn more or design a letter online to bring to the store, visit macys.com/believe
