HELP PROVIDED BY TSWWF
2017-1018 Wrestling Season Assistance
The FARF requests are now starting to come in and as of November, three young men will be on the mat because TSWWF was able to provide funds ($350 total) for their wrestling shoes and pay-to-play fees. We are looking forward to receiving many more FARF submittals!
2016-2017 Wrestling Season Assistance
Six individual contributions of $200-$300 were made to help competing middle school wrestlers cover travel expenses for tournaments in Pocatello, ID; Cody, WY, and Fargo, ND.
Best of the Northwest Wrestling Tournament
In March, TSWWF donated $1000 in support of the Best of the Northwest Tournament held at Eastern Oregon University March 31-April 1, 2017. Participating were top high school wrestlers from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington who qualified to compete in this tournament of champions. We were proud to be able to assist in making this event possible for these youth athletes.
Roy Pittman’s Peninsula Wrestling Club
In January, we contributed $3000 to the Roy Pittman Peninsula Wrestling Club for the purchase of shoes and other equipment for the young wrestlers in his program.
La Grande High School Wrestling Program
La Grande, Oregon
On January 27, a check in the amount of $3000 was presented to the La Grande High School wrestling program to give them an assist with funding. Due to some very bad weather conditions this winter, their normal fundraising activities were canceled. TSWWF answered their request for financial assistance, making it possible for the wrestling program to continue for the kids. Because of the outpouring of support from Tyrone’s fans, we were able to fill the financial gap and keep their program on track. We extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all of you who have donated dollars or volunteered time on behalf of the Foundation. This is just the beginning of fulfilling our vision to maintain Tyrone’s legacy and to support his passion for the great sport of youth wrestling.
