Seymour, IN, January 3, 2013 – The R.E.A.C.H.E.S. nonprofit organization recently supported the Owls Wrestling League (O.W.L.), a not for profit youth wrestling club associated with Seymour Wrestling Association. R.EA.C.H.E.S supported O.W.L. through the donation of 36 pairs of Brute Wrestling shoes. O.W.L. is a new league whose mission is to provide the best positive wrestling learning environment possible. Wrestling teaches discipline, sportsmanship, and a positive work ethic. O.W.L.'s goal is to develop a community supported youth wrestling program that will provide well-trained student athletes that are prepared to successfully compete in wrestling and life. In our third year we have grown 40% year over year. We will use the shoe donation to allow us to offer a low cost youth wrestling shoe option to our parents in the program. This will allow us to keep cost to participate to a minimum and insure that all kids have a chance to wrestle. We are very grateful for your generous gift of shoes supplied by the R.E.AC.H.E.S. Program and their ongoing support of all sports. William Smith, one of the O.W.L. wrestlers, added, "Having wrestling shoes provided by Brute will be sweet."
