Coming up on May 11th, non-profit pro-wrestling organization Wrestling for Warriors will put on a show for charity. This is the 4th year for the event.
Every year, the non-profit invites warriors to see pro-wrestlers in the ring. Warriors are any child with disabilities or facing a terminal illness, but not showing any signs of giving up.
The idea for Wrestling for Warriors came from executive director Christopher Holt’s son, Chase.
Chase was battling cancer, and attended a WWE show. Christopher says he realized how fortunate he was to meet these superstars, and have a smile on his face. So, he asked his dad how he could do the same for other kids like him.
Chase lost his battle to cancer in May of 2017, but Christopher continues his legacy through Wrestling for Warriors.
The event serves as a fundraiser for charities, this year is for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Tickets range from $15-$30. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. at the Grand Wayne Center.
