This day represents an annual celebration of generosity to bring charities, companies, and individuals together to rally for their favorite causes and bring about real change and impact to the communities they are passionate about.

You can donate today by texting GOLD24 to 866-502-9356 or at USA Wrestling’s GiveDirect page

We seek to build on Team USA’s historic performances this year as our athletes prepare for international competition leading all the way up to the Olympic Games Paris 2024.

Much of the Senior-level success is due to investments being made at the developmental age group, boys and girls from 5-18 years old. Being funded adequately in both the Senior and developmental age groups is what we are striving for. This includes providing more funds to assist our grass-roots programming, to supporting athletes, coaches, managers, and trainers, which equates to better results and greater development. You can make an impact now!

Your support will help athletes like Epenesa Elison of California. In the preseason national rankings, she was the No. 1 ranked female in the nation in high school as an eighth grader. She won the U15 Pan American Championships in Panama City, Panama this past weekend and won the Golden Boot as the Outstanding Wrestler in the women’s freestyle division.

When she was asked what giving her all means to her, it’s consistency, discipline and being all in. Epenesa is just one of the many outstanding individuals in our sport that your donations will help.

We are grateful and ask you to consider an end of the year tax-deductible donation on USA Wrestling’s GiveDirect page. All proceeds go to helping USA Wrestling develop and prepare our athletes for international competition and success, while expanding our grassroots program and development.

Thank you for your generosity. Your support will continue Team USA’s quest for excellence and medals at the Olympic Games and World level.
