Five-year-old Amber Randolph grew up watching her two older brothers wrestle. She cheered on the team and hoped to someday join them as a wrestler.

"Although Amber may never get to be on the mat herself, she'll still be in a way still get to be on that mat," said Chrystal Luckner, helped organize the bracelet fundraiser.

The Clearwater Youth Wrestling Club is making sure that the life of Amber Randolph is never forgotten. The group ordered "Wrestling for Amber" bracelets and have already sold 800 of them to help benefit the family.

"It's been overwhelming the support that we've gotten. It's really turned into something huge that we thought was just a gesture from our club," said Kelly Thomas, one of the parents in the wrestling club.

Randolph lost her life when the car her mother was driving was hit head-on by a pickup that flew over the barrier and into their lanes on Kellogg two weeks ago.
