Logo and Link Share – Simply post our logo and link on YOUR website and we will post your logo and link on OUR sponsor page. It’s a win, win, not to mention an easy way for you and your team to build awareness and strengthen the cause.
Get other coaches and parents involved. It’s the “in-season”, so don’t be afraid to delegate. A lot of people are affected by cancer, so it should be fairly easy to find reliable parents to assist.
Try to get the other competing teams involved. Having more wrestlers and wrestling fans engaged in the process can only help your event be more successful.

Consider purchasing T-shirts for your starting lineup to wear at the event and encourage the other teams to do so as well. Direct them to the TakeDown Cancer website. Apparel can be customized to specific school colors at no extra charge.
Purchase the correct amount of merchandise based on the expected number of spectators. If you “over order”, you can always sell the extra articles at a later date.
