Mission statement

Wrestlers Rescue’s mission is to create awareness and to help raise monies to support the health care needs of Retired Professional Wrestlers due to a career choice in wrestling.

Wrestlers rescue will be focusing on three stages of growth.
· 1st stage is to create awareness of the need and to raise funds.
· 2nd stage is to put in place a financial advisory for the active wrestling community to call on for advice on how to plan for their future. Including retirement, pension, college funds, family needs ect.
· 3rd stage is to set in place a Health care program that can be bought into at a group rate so that the community can afford care for themselves and their families.

We are dedicated to improving the lives of the professional and their families. By educating the person on how to expand their opportunities and how to reach their full potential in life.
