Dylan Palacio's Trip to Istanbul

Please help the Finger Lakes Wrestling Club-RTC assist Dylan Palacio in reaching his lifelong dream of becoming an Olympian!

All proceeds will go directly to sending Dylan and his coach, Nate Carr, Jr., to the last chance qualifier in Istanbul, Turkey. Although Dylan is a lifelong New York resident, he holds dual-citizenship and will be pursuing his dreams on behalf Uruguay.

Currently, Dylan is a student athlete at Cornell University, in Ithaca, NY. This past season he achieved All-American status when he placed 4th in the 157lb. weight class, at the NCAA Championships, as well as Academic All-American status.

Unfortunately, this trip could not be budgeted by Cornell University. Airfare, hotel accommodations, food expenses, UWW license, entry fees, and travel visas add up quickly, and this financial burden could potentially stand in the way of his success.

Please assist in his journey by making any donation you can. Every bit helps! If you are unable to make a donation of monetary value, please donate your well wishes and cheer Dylan on as he battles through his Road to Rio!
