MANOR, TEXAS - The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade this year will have a special that includes our very own Central Texas performers.
Manor High School cheerleaders have been chosen to march in the world's largest parade, but they need help from the community to ensure the entire team makes it to the Big Apple.
Out of the team of 22, who have been practicing for months, only 14 of the girls can afford to go to New York City.
Cheer Coach Norma Franco said representing the school can open other doors of opportunity for the girls.
"We worked concession stands and plenty of fundraisers,” Franco said. “And our district is helping with an Edbacker account to meet our goal for the whole team to attend."
Manor Independent School District has collected over $1,300, so far.
“We just got to get our name out there, not everyone is familiar with Manor, Texas,” Franco said.
Miracle Davidson, a junior cheerleader, said performing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show the world their talents, and including each team member is important.
“Just the bond is something that I just love so much,” she said.
