Colorado Springs — Colorado Springs Wrestling Is preparing for the big annual “Hospice Headlock” charity teleson wrestling event this morning.

  Last year, Colorado Springs Wrestling was able to raise $ 7,000 for a “hospice headlock,” and this year they hope to double that amount with a grand goal of $ 14,000. ..

  Today is the organization’s second annual charity teleson event, with special funding raised for the Sangre De Cristo Community Care, a non-profit organization here in southern Colorado. Randy Ludo, CEO of Colorado Springs Wrestling, says he chose this charity to return his money to the community in southern Colorado.

  “Hospice has been close to my heart and important to me for a very long time, especially the Sangredecrist community care. I worked there for three years and when I was there I had hundreds of families. Helped. And wrestling has been a part of my life as far as I can remember, so why I take two things I love and combine them into this called “hospice headlock” Want to make a great event?

  Today’s event begins with a presentation at noon, but the actual professional wrestling event begins at 4 pm at Sunshine Studios.
