Dedham, MA – For the last 20 years, since Coach Toubman instituted the annual pinathon fundraiser, the Nobles Wrestling Team has been raising money for various charities and collecting donations two ways. People either give a flat amount, or they donate an amount per pin recorded by any of the wrestlers on the team. Some people even pledge to multiple students. Wrestlers volunteer to undertake the project and manage the influx of pledges. This year, David Yeh ‘18 and Cam Camacho ‘18, who will also be next year’s captains, took on the challenge. They spent many hours organizing pledge sheets and tabulating results. The Nobles students, faculty, and parents helped out by making generous donations. In total, the pinathon raised $7,000. This year’s pinathon went to support Boston Youth Wrestling, an organization that Head Coach Charles Danhof has worked to develop a closer relationship with BYW over the last couple of years. This has included leading clinics at the Blue Hill Boys & Girls Club and hosting clinics at Nobles for Boston Public School students that are on campus through the Inspire Program. Coach Danhof states that “given that Nobles ‘is dedicated to inspiring leadership for the public good,’ partnering with Boston Youth Wrestling made perfect sense.” BYW President and Founder José Valenzuela when receiving the donation replied, “We are thrilled and honored to have the Nobles Wrestling community supporting the mission of BYW and humbly accept this donation on behalf of the organization.”
