Higher Calling WC receives matching donation

Posted

The largest youth wrestling club in the South recently received another boost of support from the Allan Jones Foundation.

The Higher Calling Youth Wrestling Club of Cleveland announced this week it has received a check from the Jones Foundation to match the $7,500 it had raised recently in fundraising efforts.

The foundation requires the club’s members to raise money themselves, which is later matched dollar-for-dollar.

“We give the club the challenge to raise money on their own and we are always ready to double what they raise,” said Jones Management Vice President J. Bailey Jones.

Josh Bosken, head coach of Higher Calling, said the club continues to sign up new wrestlers in grades K-8, bringing the total membership of the club to 134.

“Thanks to the Allan Jones Foundation, we are the best-funded kids' wrestling club in the South, and still the largest,” said Bosken. “If there is another club anywhere with as much excitement around it as Higher Calling, I don’t know anyone who has heard of it.”

Higher Calling is a wrestling program that gives young wrestlers of all skill levels in  grades K-8 a chance to learn the essentials of practice and competition. The goal of the program is to train and maintain the highest-quality athletes to help continue one of the finest wrestling programs in Tennessee.
