Miners in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

The UTEP Cheer and Dance teams have been invited to take part in the 95th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

This is not only a dream come true for UTEP Cheer and Dance students, but also a chance for UTEP and the El Paso community to gain national exposure, and an opportunity to recruit students from outside the region!

This is exciting news, however, many of our students come from low-income households, and we need your help to offset the total cost of the trip.

Make a gift today that will support our Cheer and Dance teams! Your support will enable 64 UTEP students to participate in a life-changing opportunity.


Below are some exciting plans for the trip: 

  • UTEP Cheer and Dance will perform in the 95th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade LIVE on NBC! 
  • UTEP Cheer and Dance will perform for the high school cheer and dance participants, parents, and others on Wed. and Thurs. IN UTEP UNIFORM! 
  • UTEP Cheer and Dance will wear Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade uniforms on parade day. 
  • Pictures taken of UTEP will be posted on Spirit of America (SOA) website and social media. 
  • UTEP Cheer and Dance teams will experience New York City through sightseeing and activities like attending the Radio City Music Hall’s “Christmas Spectacular”.  



While our goal for this Pick A Project is $12,500, we have other funding needs as well! Gifts made above and beyond $12,500 will go toward additional trip costs. 


Is your business or organization interested in sponsoring this opportunity for our students? Please reach out to Sydney Bertram at sabertram@utep.edu for information.
