Worthy Cause Countdown: This School Needs $546 For Its First-Ever Girls’ Wrestling Team [UPDATED]

Help a school sports program in need during the 12 Days of Giftmas

NOTE FROM THE EDITORS: THIS GOAL HAS BEEN MET! BUT YOU CAN GIVE TO ANOTHER WORTHY CAUSE HERE.


From December 14 through December 25, GOOD Sports will feature the worthiest school athletic programs in need of funding.

The members of Tullahoma High School’s first-ever girls wrestling team currently share three caps and five pieces of headgear. The 18 students participating in the program currently must swap equipment between matches in order to comply with Tennessee athletic safety regulations.

Tullahoma High School teacher Jenna Morris and donorschoose.org are trying to remedy that, and you can help them do it.

The team needs just $913 to cover all of their equipment costs, which will allow its members to focus on wrestling, rather than wardrobe changes. As of Thursday morning, $546 was still needed—and the fundraiser closes on Friday.

Roughly 28 percent of children under 18 in Tullahoma, Tennessee, live in poverty, according to city-data.com. Please consider supporting this project or another school athletic program in need.
