FC: 10/9/11: 150 Jills Alumni Take the Field to Dance for Breast Cancer Research
1: In May 2011, the Buffalo Bills offered the former Buffalo Bills Cheerleaders the opportunity to appear once more on the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium-- this time to perform a dance routine to bring awareness to breast cancer. Having formed an official Alumni Association in 2008, the alumni were well prepared to spread the word. No one knew how many alumni would be interested or available. It was explained that there would be a minimum of six 3-hour mandatory practices to take place at the Bills Field house over the three week period before the Oct. 9 Game. The dance would be performed right before the National Anthem prior to the Bills-Philadelphia game. The news was sent out via the Jills Alumni Facebook page, emails, with a comprehensive article in the May Jills Alumni newsletter, explaining the commitment involved. 150 former Jills signed up! Over a dozen were from out of state. Many came from Rochester and Canada and towns 'nearby' to Buffalo. Kelli Wagner, the Jills choreographer, designed the routine. Many of the current Jills helped teach. For many of the older alumni, who had never 'danced' as part of their Jills experience, it was difficult. But no one quit. We worked hard. We practiced. We were worried. We were awful. Then, like the old days, we hit our stride and rocked the dance! It was an AWESOME EXPERIENCE!
