Those 35 young women aren't all taking this lying down, however. There's a movement started, in part by Gabrielle F, who spent the 2012-13 seasons on the Jills Ambassador Squad and was slated to be that group's co-captain in 2014. The goal of that group is to garner large amounts of public support to show how much the Jills are wanted back in action. With the Bills' new ownership taking control today, the time is perfect to really get the message out there. Kim Pegula, the new Bills owner along with her husband Terry, is a former cheerleader at Houghton college herself and may very well have had some of those same dreams that the girls I talked about earlier still have. Kim hasn't been a silent partner in the Pegula's business and sports ventures and has been a big part of getting things done.

All the profits from these shirts goes to charity, specifically the Hunter's Hope Foundation started by Jim and Jill Kelly which is working toward treatments and a cure for Krabbe & Leukodystrophie.

The movement even has a website set up at Bringbackthejills.com
