Marlboro Competitive Cheer Company Become First Corporate Sponsor for Forever Moriah Foundation
Upper Marlboro, MD— December 9, 2018 — The Forever Moriah Foundation was founded by Mario and Sharday Richardson in February 2018. The Richardsons formed the non-profit in memory of their daughter Moriah, who passed away from diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG, an inoperable tumor on her brain stem. Moriah took her last breath just 13 days shy of her fifth birthday in 2013, and the Richardsons are dedicated to keeping her memory alive.
On Sunday, December 2, 2018, Marlboro Competitive Cheer held their annual showcase at Wise Senior High School in Upper Marlboro, MD. Founded in 1990, Marlboro Competitive Cheer has been a staple in the dance community, and lends itself to various philanthropic efforts. Every year MCC hosts a showcase in appreciation of their avid supporters. This year, MCC used their annual showcase to honor the Forever Moriah Foundation by presenting them with a check for $5000, becoming the organization’s first corporate sponsor.
“It is because of you & your generosity in paying it forward that now more families will be able to experience hope and be given the opportunity to continue their fight against childhood cancer,” Mario stated in acceptance of the donation.
MCC’s donation to the Forever Moriah Foundation will be the first of many as the cheer troupe has pledged to donate to the cause every year.
“When we look across society and see how cancer is rapidly affecting people, it doesn’t discriminate; it starts from the youngest child to the oldest adult. We know that this is a seed, and it does not meet all of the needs that are out there, but we are vowing to do our part and contribute whatever we can, and we will continue,” said MCC’s founder and director, Sharese Stevens.
