The Medina cheerleading squad includes eight members. Christina Reddy is the group’s head coach. She said the funds from the car wash will help assist the team in the upcoming season, which includes home varsity football games and the Niagara-Orleans Game Day competition at Wilson on Oct. 17.

Cheerleading is considered an official sport. Reddy said the cheerleaders support the football team and work to get the crowd involved and energized.

Some of the funds may be used to help the cheerleaders with the cost of cheer shoes, socks and bows for their hair.

The car washes were $5.
