ELK RIVER HIGH SCHOOL

TEAM TOURNAMENT & INDIVIDUAL TOURNAMENT

 

THE ELK RIVER WRESTLING CLUB HAS MADE THE DECISION TO CANCEL THE TOURNAMENT. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO REGISTERED, PLEASE KEEP US IN MIND NEXT YEAR!

 

Kyle Brehm and Nate Dahl are organizing this fundraiser on behalf of American Cancer Society. 

Several years back, Kyle and Nate decided to enter the Old Timers Tournament with some friends. Last year, they decided to wrestle for a cause, and raise some money. They ultimately raised $3,400 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! 

Kyle and Nate will be back again this year, and will be wrestling to benefit The American Cancer Society.  In addition to donations, they would love for other participants and/or teams to help in the fundraising effort.

Can you help the cause?  Visit the web page link to the left to enter your donation, or contact Kyle at brehm020@gmail.com to join in the fundraising effort! 

Thank you!

The Elks Took Down Cancer in 2020!

Re: Takedown Cancer Event

To whom this may concern,

Please accept the enclosed check for $761.16. This is the amount that the Elk River Wrestling team raised during our Takedown Cancer night that was held Friday, February 7, 2020 when we faced Champlin Park in our final dual of the year.

It was a great week of participation from our Varsity and Junior Varsity wrestlers. During the week, they sold $1.00 name cards to family, faculty and classmates in the days leading up to that Friday night. On the name card, the buyer could write a name of someone they were memorializing that lost their fight to cancer and/or a name of someone that they were honoring who is winning their battle with cancer. Each team member was given a goal to sell five. They all reached their goal and we are very proud of their accomplishment. On the night of the event prior to the varsity dual, I explained the fundraiser to all in attendance and made an announcement that for the next two minutes (the time of one wrestling period) we would be going up in the crowd to collect any donations. So, with assistance from our three captains and the three captains from Champlin Park; they went into the crowd and collected over $400.00 in two minutes!

Thus, from the sale of the name cards, the two-minute fundraiser and a $250.00 donation from us, we are very proud to donate the enclosed check. We plan to continue this as an annual event. In the seven years that we have been participating, we have raised $5,781.63. On behalf of the Booster Club and the entire Elk River wrestling family, we appreciate what you do for the community and your efforts to Takedown Cancer!

Sincerely,

Elk River Wrestling Boosters
Tom Osberg
President


Congratulations Seth Hopkins - 5th Place State Winner!
