Cheerleaders and players of the Coventry Rams Youth Football and Cheerleading Association are currently in the running to win a $500 grant for the organization through the Pop Warner Pink Games Photo Contest. The contest was launched following the nationwide Inaugural Pop Warner Pink Games that helped raise awareness for Breast Cancer research.
In order to win, the Rams need the help of their fellow Coventry residents, who are being asked to simply "like" their photo submission in the Pop Warner Facebook album. The Rams' photo already made it through the first selection round and is now up against 11 other finalists to see which organization can earn the most Facebook "likes" by the voting deadline of 5 p.m. EST on Monday, Oct. 28.
In their photo, more than two dozen Coventry Rams cheerleaders pose with the Rhode Island Chapter of Pink Heals' rescue truck, "Jenna", named several years ago in honor of Jenna Jacques, who was fighting cancer at the time. Sadly, Jenna lost her battle on July 6, 2013 at the age of 9 years old.
To vote for the Coventry Rams, Facebook users simply need to be logged into their accounts and head over to the Pop Warner Pop Warner Pink Games Photo Contest Finalists album. From there, click on the Rams' photo (the sixth thumbnail in the album), and "like" it. To help the cause even further, voters are free to share the photo with their own Facebook friends, asking them to do the same.
To make it super easy, just click this sentence to be brought directly to the Coventry Rams photo and "like" it by 5 p.m. on Oct. 28!
As of noon on Friday, the Coventry rams were in fourth place with 322 "likes", 588 votes behind the first place photo.
Apart from the $500 grant for first place, Pop Warner will also award Team Cheer gift cards to the organizations placing second through fifth in the following amounts:
- 2nd Place - $250
- 3rd Place - $150
- 4th & 5th place - $100
After the winners have been announced, a photo slideshow featuring many of the photos submitted this year will be posted on www.popwarner.com.
