The Illinois Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame has a strong tradition of supporting wrestling. Our mission is to preserve the culture of our sport, honor those who have greatly impacted wrestling and inspire youth to become involved in the sport. Sportsmanship, discipline, self-respect, commitment and integrity are just a few of the positive life traits wrestling reinforces.
Our valuable mission is supported solely by the generosity of donors. Your support will directly contribute to the legacy of those we honor and help to inspire our youth to take up the sport and excel in both wrestling and life.
