Veteran professional wrestler Mike Quackenbush has announced the fundraising initiative for National Pro Wrestling Day 2021. Unlike years past, there will be no live event held in conjunction with the holiday celebration this year, but the mission of National Pro Wrestling Day will continue regardless. A creation of Quackenbush’s, the holiday began in 2013, intent on demonstrating the positive power wrestling can have. For 2021, Quackenbush directs that effort at The Trevor Project, a non-profit organization addressing the crisis of LGBTQ youth suicide, predominantly in the United States of America.
To date, The Trevor Project is the only 24/7 suicide prevention hotline specifically addressing the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer and questioning youth community. Headquartered in West Hollywood, CA, The Trevor Project was founded in 1998 with the goal of ending LGBTQ youth suicide. Since its inception, The Trevor Project has expanded its work to include school workshops, a youth advisory council, and social media outreach.
Mike Quackenbush announced the 2021 fundraiser today via video, speaking out on the charitable initiatives of National Pro Wrestling Days past and present. As in years past, 100% of the donations go directly to the charity selected.
