TN HS Wrestlers Mat Stolen by Company

UPDATE: GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!  We have been Blessed today! Dollamur Sports Surfaces contacted us today, after learning about our story from WSMV - News 4 in Nashville with Caresse Jackman.  Dollamur has so kindly and graciously offered to send us a new mat for our program! 

We are so grateful to everyone!  A HUGE Shout Out/Thank you to Taylor Hood and the Nashville MMA,  for all they have done to assist us thru this nightmare! 

We would like to return any and all donations who have graciously contributed to our challenge and hardship!

Thank you to those who have taken it a step further, and asked us to keep the donation and use it for the program.  Please contact me at [email redacted] or 615.504.0244 so that we may return your donation.  Thank you to all, God Bless, and thank you for your help with our miracle!

TN  HS Wrestling Team - Student Athletes, Parents, Coaches, & Friends worked really hard to raise the funds to order a Wrestling Mat for their HS Program.  The mat was ordered with a Company, in July 2019, and the Mat was PAID N FULL.

Sadly, 16 months later, we have  NEVER received the mat.  Hours upon hours of telephone calls, emails, & letters still have not convinced this company to do the RIGHT THING!  We asked the company for our money back, and they told us the check would bounce.  They are truly lacking a moral compass, & do not care.

We have involved BBB, Consumer Affairs, Maryland AG, TN AG, Congressmen, State Elected Leaders, and the US Federal Trade Commission.   Our small HS Wrestling Team does not have the funds to hire an attorney to try and get our money back.

After 16 months of this battle, TIME is NOT on our side.  Our next season is a few weeks out, and we still have no mat.  We had to cancel Home Matches last year, due to no mat, and this is simply not fair to these students who have worked so hard!  As our students are learning from this, that some Adults & Businesses are not people of their word or operate with integrity, I would like to also share with them another valuable life lesson, human kindness in the time of need.  Fellow mankind helps those who have worked hard, and have a crisis at no fault of their own.

I am the Former School Board Member of these amazing young folks, and the wife of their Head Coach.  I humbly can tell you that they have worked so hard, and thus I decided to ask for Support, for these, Our future Leaders!  I know in my heart of hearts that these Parents, Student Athletes, and Coaches would be there for anyone else in the same situation.

No donation is too small!  If you can not assist us with a monetary donation, we will gladly be happy for your prayers, during this time.  Thank you and God Bless!
