Wrestlers Aid Madison Coach's Ill Daughter
More than $2,000 raised to help pay medical costs of 4-year-old with inoperable brain tumor.
The wrestling teams of Mendham High School and Morristown High School came together in competition and in charity on Wednesday when players wrestled and raised money for Brooke Healey, a 4-year-old with an inoperable brain tumor.
Healey is the daughter of Madison High School wrestling coach Steve Healey. The wrestlers wore t-shirts that said "I wrestle for Brooke" during the match and parents collected donations to benefit the Healey family.
Donations totaled $1,500 from the event and the parents and wrestlers raised an additional $600 in t-shirt sales. All funds will directly benefit the family's medical costs.
