The event brings together passionate wrestling fans from across the country to celebrate the NCAA Wrestling Championships. While fans socialize, high-impact personalities with connections to wrestling will share what the sport means to them in seven-minute interviews on stage. “I’m thrilled to be a part of this powerful event that amplifies the best of wrestling before the men’s NCAA Championships while growing the sport alongside J Robinson,” said Wrestle Like A Girl Founder Sally Roberts. “Wrestling is important because it strengthens the fabric of America and builds our next generation of leaders, regardless of gender, and that’s something we can all champion.”
The guest lineup features speakers from across the wrestling world, including two—Sally Roberts and Tom Block—with a military background. “I am beyond excited to be part of this new event that celebrates the impact of wrestling,” said SGT (Ret.) Tom Block. “It truly is the best sport because it’s unforgiving and immensely rewarding all at once. I’m stoked to be able to share how wrestling gave me the tools to become an Army Ranger and serve in the elite 75th Ranger Regiment.”
Event proceeds will be gifted to TakeDown Cancer, an initiative of the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. “All of us at the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund would like to take this opportunity to thank J Robinson for partnering with TakeDown Cancer,” said Randy Shaver, KARE 11 news anchor and founder of the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. “Each dollar raised makes an impact on the lives of Minnesota’s Cancer Community! Thank you to J Robinson.”
