Funding

Profits from the Brute Nationals event are donated back to wrestling and have provided nearly $380,000 in assistance to wrestling programs through the REACHES Fund to provide opportunities to wrestlers of all ages. Past proceeds have gone to start new wrestling programs at New Mexico Highlands University, helped purchase mats for Delaware State University assisted with legal fees associated with an effort in saving 10 men’s and women’s athletic programs from elimination at James Madison University, wrestling included.

Through the efforts of exceptional groups of people like yourself who support kids activities, we all will continue to shape and forge partnerships that will improve the quality of life in our communities. The shared experiences are key in building a future of developmental opportunities for all our youth.
The kids are so excited and can’t wait to receive their gifts, hopefully they will arrive soon.
Again many thanks,”
