JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps and Trackwrestling have announced a partnership to co-host a DI Wrestling Championships kickoff party on Wednesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. at The Barn at Cowboy Jack's Saloon and Restaurant in Minneapolis. Event proceeds will be donated to TakeDown Cancer, an initiative of the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.

The event, known as 7 IN 7, will feature seven high-profile guests with connections to the wrestling community, including businesspeople, entertainers, athletes, and coaches. Dan Gable, 1972 Olympic gold medalist, two-time NCAA national champion wrestler, and 15-time NCAA national champion head coach, is the first booked guest. The full lineup of featured guests will be revealed via JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps and Trackwrestling social media in the coming weeks.

Shane Sparks, Trackwrestling and Big Ten Network wrestling commentator, will serve as the event emcee. Sparks will interview each of the seven guests for seven minutes, the length of a collegiate wrestling match, mirroring the format of Trackwrestling's popular "Seven Minutes" Q&A series.

7 IN 7 builds on the two organizations' rich traditions of celebrating and growing the sport of wrestling.

"This is an exciting new event that will tell stories of the life-changing impact wrestling has had on all of us," said J Robinson, the three-time NCAA national champion head coach and founder of JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps. "We are proud to partner with Trackwrestling and TakeDown Cancer to help find a cure for a disease that has touched so many."

For Trackwrestling, the event is an opportunity to further expand its wide-reaching presence during the championship weekend.

"We are thrilled to work with JROB Intensive Wrestling Camps, a long-time partner of Trackwrestling, in an effort to bring the wrestling community together to celebrate our great sport and support an important cause," said Travis Shives, Vice President of Sports, SportsEngine and Trackwrestling. "The wrestling community is special and we can't think of a better opportunity to come together and make an impact off the mat."

"All of us at the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund would like to take this opportunity to thank J Robinson for partnering with TakeDown Cancer," said Randy Shaver, KARE 11 news anchor and founder of the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. "Each dollar raised makes an impact on the lives of Minnesota's Cancer Community! Thank you to J Robinson."

A limited number of tickets for the event are available to the general public at 7in7party.com. Tickets cost $15 and include one free drink ticket per 21+ guest.
