The talented athletes of the Lincoln-Way Central varsity and junior varsity cheer team are always full of school spirit, but it was holiday cheer that inspired them to host a heartwarming event.

On Nov. 24, the LWC cheerleaders held a free Special Olympics Cheer Clinic to teach aspiring cheerleaders with special needs tips and techniques. To build on the season of giving, each participant was encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots.
