The sport of wrestling teaches self-discipline and how to fight to the finish, its a sport that has taken one Iowa couple all over the country.

“We started out with 6 for 6 people and one young boy died when he was 15 and we still buy his ticket,” says Richard Montross.

Their sixth member, Matthew Morell died of cancer several years ago.

So, now Richard and Barb Montross of Iowa City give their extra ticket away to a wrestling fan.

They've given away the spare ticket for 26 years.

The act of kindness means even more to Richard this year because he is fighting his own battle against skin cancer.
