Cheer 4 Your life is a Non Profit organization 501(c)3 based in Dallas, Texas with one main objective: to help teens fulfill their dreams and goals with emotional and financial support.  Native Texan, Missy Payne founded C4YL after becoming a finalist on the hit TV series Survivor: San Juan del Sur.

“My passion to empower kids to dream big and reach for the stars excelled dramatically after I played Survivor”, says Missy. “Teens with at least one influential mentor in their life report they have a higher sense of self and are more likely to take risks that affect their lives positively”.  C4YL emphasizes self-discipline, commitment and integrity among teens in difficult circumstances, by providing opportunities for them to participate in clubs and school programs that develop their unique skills and talents.

C4YL has three primary fundraising initiatives to support kids:
  • C4YL Warriors Project” – Tribes of teens engage in monthly challenges which focus on awareness, service, and equality. Proceeds go to a deserving peer in need.
  • It’s A Jungle Out There” – annual benefit extravaganza. The evening includes a Jungle themed VIP reception, seated dinner, Survivor and other reality TV celebrity appearances, silent and live auction, and performances by the talented beneficiaries in which we are dedicated.
  • Corporate & Family Sponsors – Generous donations of time and funding have been given by Garry Weber, the Crosland Group, Ali & Justin Treaster, Paige and Richard Sowden, Tavia & Clark Hunt, and many others who whole heartedly believe in the importance of investing in the life of a child.
MISSION:  Cheer 4 Your life is a non profit organization 501(C)3 that helps empower youth by providing supportive funding as needed for individual participation in various clubs and school programs including but not limited to athletic programs, performance based programs and service projects.
