Duluth East High School cheerleaders participated in UCA Camp and generated over 400 letters to support the Team Up for St. Jude Program.  Team Up for St. Jude is a student-led, student-run philanthropic program in which high school students raise both funds and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The program engages students in a combined effort to fight childhood cancer and show their school spirit at the same time. The Duluth East team received national recognition on twitter from the UCA and Varsity.
