post by Billie Owens in Event

A preschooler at Jackson Elementary School was diagnosed with leukemia on Jan. 17 and a cheer-a-thon will be held on March 14 to help her and her family.

Four-year-old Emma Harris is very passionate about cheerleading and has been involved with the Batavia Bulldawgs.

So a fundraiser focused on cheerleading is a great way to help "Team Emma." Its motto is "We Got This!"

The cheer-a-thon will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday March 14 at Batavia High School for anyone ages 4 to 12. It will be followed by a performance at 7 p.m. by local high school cheerleaders, dancers from local dance studios and cheer-a-thon participants. In between time, there will be pizza for the participants.

There will also be a 50/50 drawing and Chinese auction at the performance to help the family with medical and travel expenses.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three cheerleaders who bring in the most donations. Participants will get a T-shirt and will perform a cheer, short dance routine, stunts, jumps and other fun activities.

For questions / information call or text Sherri Wahr at (585) 356-0639.

Macy Paradise, a professional DJ from Batavia now living in Colorado, will do a benefit show at T.F. Brown's at 10 tonight. People are encouraged to make a donation in the name of Baby Chandler (Zuchs) for the event and proceeds will go to GCASA.

By donating money to GCASA, Paradise says he hopes "to prevent losing another innocent child to violence."

Paradise, who is a father himself, says the news of Baby Chandler's death earlier this month hit him especially hard. Plus, he is a former coworker of Jeffrey Deats, who is accused of causing the 6-months-old's death and who is now at ECMC and not expected to survive after attempting suicide in GC Jail.

Donations will be accepted through 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 29 at T.F. Brown's, located at 214 E. Main St. in Downtown Batavia.
