Cheerleading Championships to raise funds for military treatment: cheerleading championships held in Lviv region

The Ukrainian Cheerleading Championship among pupils and students was held in Lviv at the Bosko Arena on May 11-12.

More than 1500 cheerleaders from 53 leading clubs representing 14 regions of Ukraine and Kyiv competed for the awards.

Cheerleaders from Lviv region won 47 sets of awards:

Lviv Angels (including the Dmytro Obbarius Children and Youth Sports School and the Dmytro Sydoruk Children and Youth Sports School): 9 gold, 3 silver, 8 bronze award sets.
🔸Nancy Dolls: 5 gold, 9 silver, 10 bronze award sets
🔸BeLLa: 2 gold, 1 silver award sets.

The highlight of the championship was the performances of the Ukrainian national teams in the dance, jazz and hip-hop categories. The teams presented their routines for the first time, which they will compete with at the 2024 European Championships in late June in Oslo. Among the representatives of the national team are many pupils of Lviv cheerleading club Lviv Angels (including the Dmytro Obbarius Children’s and Youth Sports School and the Dmytro Sydoruk Children’s and Youth Sports School).

Traditionally, cheerleading competitions have raised funds for charity. This time it was for the Revived Soldiers Ukraine Foundation. The foundation finances the work of rehabilitation centers in Lviv and Irpin, which receive up to 45 wounded soldiers a day during the war. Revived Soldiers Ukraine has also organized rehabilitation and prosthetics for 95 seriously wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States at its own expense.

In particular, the funds raised by the cheerleaders during the competition will be used to manufacture the latest generation of electronic prosthesis for Ukrainian soldier Mykola Melnyk, a knight of the Order of Bohdan Khmelnytsky. During the war, Mykola Melnyk was the commander of the Bregli mechanized company of the 47th Brigade. Under his command, the company was one of the first to liberate several kilometers of Ukrainian land in the Zaporizhzhia sector during a major counteroffensive in June 2023. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and prosthetics in the United States thanks to the Revived Soldiers Ukraine Foundation.

“Raising funds at children’s competitions is not only about helping the military. It is also about educating young people. Children should understand the realities in which we live from an early age, be grateful to our soldiers for their protection and know that everyone can help,” says Roman Khimyak, head of the Youth and Sports Department of the Lviv Regional Military Administration.
