There is not a single community across the country that is immune from the heroin and opioid epidemic. This is one of the most pressing and serious issues for a whole generation of young Americans. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50.
The mission of Wrestling Takes Down Drugs is to expand, strengthen and educate our local wrestling programs to build self-esteem in our young athletes necessary to avoid the temptation of drug and alcohol abuse.
We believe the Wrestling Takes Down Drugs campaign offers a major step forward for fighting this epidemic in 2 ways:
1) Prevention – Empowering the youth of America to avoid the temptation of drugs by focusing their energies on strengthening their mind and body through the sport of wrestling; and
2) Treatment – Supporting local drug counseling centers to help strengthen the mind and body of those already caught in the web of addiction.
Your involvement is critical to our success and solving this issue.
Thank you again for your help.
