The cover of the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders 2017 Swimsuit Calendar will be revealed exclusively on PhiladelphiaEagles.com on Monday, August 8th! Here's a preview of just a few of the beautiful calendar images.
Gracing the cover of this year's calendar is Victoria, a captain and a three-year veteran of the squad. This past February, she represented the Eagles Cheerleaders on a Goodwill Military Tour to Korea, visiting United States service members at six different military bases over the course of nine days. Victoria attends West Chester University and is currently pursuing a degree in communication studies.
The Eagles Cheerleaders partnered with Apple Vacations, Iberostar Resorts and SportsRadio 94WIP for the 2017 calendar photoshoot in Riviera Maya, Mexico. While in Mexico, the squad dedicated time to the surrounding community by focusing their efforts on local youth and wildlife conservation.
The cheerleaders spent a day at Ciudad de Angeles, a children's home in Cozumel, that cares for children who have been orphaned, abandoned or abused. They also traveled to Xcaret, an eco-archeological park in Quintana Roo, Mexico, to learn more about endangered species and to participate in a team-building exercise, Sea Trek, an underwater adventure. Additionally, the squad visited a sanctuary for endangered Spider Monkeys and made an honorary donation as a way to bring awareness to its preservation endeavors.
The Eagles Cheerleaders are involved in hands-on sustainability projects, conservation efforts and are committed to finding ways to reduce the carbon footprint on the environment. This year, through their calendar project, they are bringing attention to social and environmental issues by wearing Fair Trade accessories. Fair Trade, which promotes the respect of people and the planet, considers the implications on the environment when producing goods and promotes the responsible stewardship of resources.
A portion of the calendar's proceeds will be donated to the Elmwood Park Zoo in support of their mission to promote wildlife and environmental conservation. Elmwood Park Zoo is the home to Noah, a live bald eagle that makes special appearances throughout the year at various Eagles events, including home games.
