Empowering Young Women thru Sports

Drew’s Foundation was happy to facilitate the travel of 7 young women from Bethel to an All Girls Wrestling Tournament held in Sitka, Alaska this past weekend, Dec. 5-6. The young women competed in a round robin tourney on Friday and a bracketed championship tourney on Saturday. All the girls got at least 6 matches and some had 10. Competing were Amber Wade, Cassandra David, Kelly and Haley O’Brien, Elisha Naneng, Andrea Wuya, and Allison Pleasent.
Wrestling teaches confidence, motivation, strength and teamwork. Our hope is that these young ladies, thru their own empowerment, can become role models and mentors for other young women. Women CAN do whatever they want and be successful at it, even something like wrestling.
Our special thanks goes out to the O’Brien family for their donation of air miles, to Kuskokwim Learning Academy administration for juggling tickets, and to all the girls that competed. Their performance and behavior were awesome.
