Wrestler appreciates trip support

Hi, my name is Jadzia Martin. I am a wrestler for the Anchor Kings Wrestling Program and I was given a very big gift by several people for the opportunity to wrestle in the Western Kids Regionals in Pocatello, Idaho, and the USA Asics 2011 National Tournament in Farmington, Utah.

First of all I would like to say thank you to Tony Crump and his family for donating $1,100 to me so that I could go to the Team Alaska Camp and help pay for my flight down to Idaho. Tony, thank you so much. You have no idea how much this meant to me. I know I may not have shown my appreciation but, Tony and Dawn, it was the most awesome trip ever and the experience will stay with me for a long time.

Next I would like to say thank you to the VFW Post 10221 from Anchor Point for their donation of $150, the Men's Auxiliary Unit for the $50 donation and the Women's Auxiliary for their $50 donation as well. I am so grateful to you guys for helping raise that last bit of money to make this trip happen. Aunt Terry, thank you so much and thank you as well, Uncle Mark. You guys are awesome.

Last but not least, I would like to say thank you to the Anchor Point Community for all the donations that were made in the cans at the local area stores and thank you to the Anchor River Inn, the Warehouse and to Thurmonds for allowing us the opportunity to place our donation cans there. I would also like to thank my mom, Janie Martin, for coming with me and being my supporter and rooting me on at all my matches. Mommy, thank you so much. I really would not have been able to do this without you; I love you. Mommy.

A big bunch of thanks,

Jadzia Martin, eighth grader
