Reunited and it "Cheers" so Good!
Alumni Cheerleaders is excited to catch up with member, Kim Cohn, former Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleader. Kim shares some of her favorite memories and pictures with us as a cheerleader.
Hello everyone. My name is Kim Cohn, and I am a former Philadelphia Eagles alumni cheerleader. Some of my favorite memories are the ones that I share with my fellow 80’-81’ cheer squad teammates and the experience of performing at Super Bowl XV in New Orleans, LA.
I have passed my love for cheer and dance on to my daughter by registering her for Pop Warner and All-Star cheer teams when she was younger, together with countless dance classes. Now that she is older and a cheer coach herself, I have spent some time helping her coach her 105 lb. Pennsauken Panthers cheer squad.
I recently took my own pom-poms out of retirement by participating in a video entitled “Team Ra-Ra’s Kicks Breast Cancer” with some of my oldest and dearest friends who are also part of the Philadelphia Eagles alumni cheerleaders. Our video has become a YouTube sensation. As a member of Team Ra Ras, I have also kicked up my heels and performed at a Philadelphia Soul Arena Football game as well as a Drexel University basketball game. I am also looking forward to performing with Team Ra Ras, as well as volunteering my services, in support of my former NFL quarterback, Ron Jaworski, for his fundraiser, Jaw’s Youth Playbook Celebrity Softball Game in July of this year. Our recent performances have reminded me of just how much I love to perform.
In addition to the time I spend with my fellow NFL alumni cheerleaders, I also enjoy adult jazz and hip-hop dance classes at DeMarco Dance Center in Merchantville, NJ. When I am not dancing or performing with Philadelphia Chapter NFL Alums, I can be found managing my household in Cherry Hill, NJ with my husband and our three teenage sons. Prior to this year, in 2009-2011, I worked in the constituent services office of former U.S. Congressman, the late John Adler and currently volunteer my services to Shelley Adler’s campaign for Congress.
