Free Meals for Cheerleaders Supporting Iraan Braves

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - All cheerleaders making the trek to Abilene to support the Iraan Braves on Friday will receive a free meal courtesy of Chick-fil-A!

Upwards of one hundred cheer squads from around the state have expressed interest in attending the Iraan vs. Wellington semi-final playoff game at Shotwell Stadium Friday night.

The cheerleaders are encouraged to meet at the Display building at the Taylor County Expo Center (across from Shotwell Stadium) before the game at 5:00 p.m. if they want to take part in the free meal.

Cheerleaders and their sponsors will also get into the playoff game for free. They just need to wear cheer uniforms or jackets to qualify!

This show of support comes after the Iraan Braves cheer bus was struck by an eighteen-wheeler on I-20 while the team was traveling home after winning their quarter-final game against Munday.

Several cheerleaders sustained serious injuries, and the cheer coach sponsor, Elizabeth Pope, 52, was killed.

Iraan Cheerleader Alumna and current cheer-coach Starla Warren felt called to action after hearing of the tragic event, creating a Facebook page call BRAVE Strong Cheerleaders in an attempt to rally support for the team.

A post asking for surrounding cheer coaches to help her "pack the stands with cheerleaders at the Iraan playoff game Friday" has since gone viral, getting almost 2,000 shares.

KTAB and KRBC will be at the game on Friday to show you all the support from the stands. Stick with BigCountryHomepage for the latest on this developing story.
