Will You Step Into The Circle for NYC’s Youth Wrestlers?
About Step Into The Circle: Step Into The Circle (SITC) is opportunity for former wrestlers to help raise money for future wrestlers. It’s wrestling’s equivalent to a charity run. It’s an adult fundraising wrestling tournament with a focus on FUN (two minute matches, takedowns only, single elimination, madison style brackets based on age, weight, skill).
You’re asking your friends to sponsor you to Step Into The Circle. Relive your glory days AND help give back to the sport that gave so much to you. 100% of your fundraising efforts will support Beat the Streets Wrestling Inc, bringing the sport of wrestling to over 3,000 kids and over 150 programs in New York City.
About Beat The Streets: Beat the Streets Wrestling Inc. (BTSNY) is a New York City not-for-profit organization providing wrestling programs in New York City Middle Schools and High Schools. Our name says it best - through the sport of wrestling, we provide disadvantaged and at-risk youths with the tools and opportunities necessary for them to beat the streets. Our youth not only learn the physical skills of wrestling – they develop confidence and self-reliance while learning to be courageous, to be resilient, to work hard and to never give up. These are lessons that our boys and girls learn alone on the mat, and will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
We believe every child should have access to this unique sport, which offers such a high potential for personal growth, self-empowerment and achievement. To that end, we are committed to bringing this sport to as many children and adolescents as possible. We – and more importantly, they – rely on people like you to make this possible. http://btsny.org/
