Eagles Cheerleaders Tackle Breast Cancer 

Posted by James at 2:34 PM ET

The Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders were at Lincoln Financial Field last night for a rare full squad appearance.

According to Cheerleader Director Barbara Zaun the event actually served two purposes. Fans rarely, if ever, get to see and meet the entire squad, she explained. At a game you may see the whole squad, but the cheerleaders are on the field and there's no fan interaction. Other times at events, fans can meet the cheerleaders, but it's usually just 2 or 4 cheerleaders. This was a chance to meet all 38 cheerleaders in person. It was also a chance to raise money help raise money to fight breast cancer. Fans made donations and purchased related merchandise. Since the Eagles have teamed up with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, over $750,000 has been raised.
