This October, Taylor will embark on an exciting journey to Manama, Bahrain, in the Persian Gulf, where she will represent not just Williston, but the entire United States, at the 16u level in the 2024 ISA Gymnasaide. Competing both individually and on the USA Dual team in freestyle wrestling at 49kg / 108lbs, Taylor’s dedication and talent will be on display on the international stage.

As thrilling as this opportunity is, it comes with significant expenses. To cover her travel costs, including flights to and from team camp, flights to and from Bahrain, hotels, meals, team gear, and the entrance fee for the ISF international competition, Taylor is aiming to raise $4,500.

Taylor has a strong support system of family, friends, and neighbors who have encouraged her throughout her wrestling career. Her parents and family are incredibly proud of her accomplishments and are rallying behind her to make this dream a reality.

Now, it’s our turn to show Taylor just how much we believe in her. I wanted to do my part to get the word out about her journey because this is huge for Taylor and Williston. Every little bit helps, and donations can be sent to Cinda Marquis at PO Box 657, Williston, ND 58802. For those who prefer digital transactions, Venmo donations are also welcome.

Let’s come together and support Taylor Brouillette as she represents Williston and the USA on the world stage. With our help, Taylor can focus on what she does best: wrestling her heart out and making us all proud.

Go, Taylor, go!
