STRETCH GOAL: $60,000! UNI Wrestling smashed its initial goal of $15,000 within 48 hours. The total cost to purchase and install the new mats is $60,000. Move the Panther Train faster and farther by helping fund the entire project!
The University of Northern Iowa wrestling team needs to replace the most important piece of training equipment it has inside the West Gym—the practice mats. Student-athletes spend countless hours practicing and preparing to be the best on these mats.
The current mats have been used for nine years, and in those nine years the program has had 47 NCAA qualifiers, earned 11 All-American honors and crowned a Division I National Wrestling champion. The individual and team success the team experienced during that span was built on the practice mats, and the mats are showing the wear and tear of creating champions.
Please make a gift today to help the UNI wrestling program purchase and install new mats in its wrestling room. You will have a direct impact on student-athletes and ensure they have top of the line facilities available to them.
*All funds raised in excess of the goal will support the needs of the UNI wrestling program.
