The company, Randall Beans, is starting their new campaign to support and power amateur athletics with their organic, homegrown variety of beans. These grown and made in America beans are fueling athletes across the country in an effort to spread the word about the nutritious effects that beans have on the body. Randall beans is owned by Meredith Keating and has been in operation since 1876. In regards to this “Powered By Beans” movement, Randall Beans is very excited to begin its partnership with MIT Cheerleading as a supporter of amateur athletics and has graciously donated $1,000 to the MIT Cheerleading squad in an effort to become our very first maroon level donor!
On Friday, October 19th, the MIT Cheer Squad helped kick-off the start of the men’s and women’s basketball seasons at MIT alongside several other student groups at MIT. Our squad cheered on our men’s and women’s basketball players during their intra-squad scrimmages and one of our members shocked the crowd by scoring a basket during the dunk contest and winning a prize… Check out our halftime performance video here!
We wish both the men’s and women’s basketball teams good luck on another successful season, and look forward to seeing the fans in the audience! Please find links below for more information on rosters, schedules, and more:
MIT Cheer believes that team bonding is crucial to the continuous success and growth of its program and for its individual members. Throughout the year, our squad holds bonding events to facilitate the close friendships within our community. Today, our squad had its First-Ever Revere Beach Day! As a team, we took a day trip to the beach, drilled techniques, practiced cheers, and spent some time under the sun! We also introduced our Big-Little Program to our new members, which pairs a new member of the squad with an older member in order to promote unity and provide each new cheerleader with a support system for getting used to life away from home at college, the academic rigors of MIT, and life as an MIT Cheerleader. Below is a video compilation of pictures and footage taken from our day at the beach!
Thank you to all those who came out today! We encourage everyone to start having fun with their new bigs/littles & look out for our next bonding event!
