Hudson will turn 19 in a week and is the daughter of Laurel (Kiefer) Salazar and Todd Hudson. She is studying criminal justice at IUSB and was an assistant cheerleading coach at Bremen Middle School this year. She graduated from BHS in 2012.
Being a Colts cheerleader is a part-time job and just getting chosen is a big expense. The people of Bremen and Marshall County are being asked to rallying around Danielle and supporting her in this quest.
The cost for the five auditioning workshops totals $95 but Hudson will also need gas money. She goes to college and has a job, too, and her employer is working around the try-outs schedule. In addition to gas money, she can probably use help in buying try-out clothes.
Would you like to help? Linda Mullen Clevenger is leading the charge. If you would like to make a donation, you can either send a check to Danielle Hudson at 2854 State Rd 331, Bremen. 46506or use Clevenger’s PayPal account firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will gladly forward the money to her. Other ways to help include sending her a gas credit card or gift card for tanning or clothing.
Danielle’s mom, Laurel, works at First Federal in Bremen if you want to deliver a gift in person or just stop by to wish her luck and/or congratulations for Danielle. Of course, you can also send Danielle a note of luck to her Facebook page, Danielle Hudson.
If you’ve seen any news coverage of the Colts cheerleaders, they do so much more than just cheer. Just this past year, the cheerleaders raised over $20,000 for cancer research by shaving their heads!!
Another way to help out is to go to the cheerleader page to vote for her. Although the voting, by itself, does not determine who the cheerleaders will be, it certainly gets the attention of the judges. Go to https://www.coltscheer.com/ListOut.aspx, click on “Voting” then click on “Danielle H.” She’s in the eighth row down and all the way to the right. She’s holding her own on the voting with almost 1,700 votes. The highest vote count on the site is over 10,000 and the lowest was in the 30’s.
