Why give to the Gopher WC? Short message to donors and prospective donors

The sport is an amazing vehicle for self development and can give the whole Minnesota wrestling community something to take pride in.  A solid foundation at the highest level gives the younger generations goals to strive for and high level people to be around and learn from.  Without support, wrestlers would not be able to see how far they can go and develop.  It is fulfilling for donors because they feel invested and they make a big difference.
