who we are

Dr. Winslow Schock came to Rock Hill, SC in 1991, a newcomer, to begin a chiropractic practice and a new life.  While volunteering at Boyd Hill Rec Center, he gave tennis lessons and life lessons to at-risk children.  Dr. Winslow, working with Center Director Richard Hemphill, began with 50 children with the greatest need and supplied them with some "Basic Essentials" that Christmas. CHEER FOR CHILDREN was born out of that experience.  Since 1992, CHEER FOR CHILDREN  has shown children that they all are a valued member of the community and all have the capability to promote a culture of kindness in our schools and community.



A CHILD WHO BELIEVES IS A CHILD WHO ACHIEVES.




BELIEVE....YOU ARE A STAR!!!!




















WHY WE DO IT


For 25 years, CHEER FOR CHILDREN has been bringing hope and encouragement to children in York County, SC.  With great collaboration with Rock Hill School District III, CFC has helped children with "Basic Essentials," helped them to "Believe You Are A Star" and to become "A More Valuable Person."  We encourage literacy on all levels with our CHEER FOR CHILDREN Free Library and help all our students to "Pay It Forward."  It is a blessing and a privilege and it truly "Takes A Village."
