Cat Zingano has been a main event name in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts for over 15 years, but very few fans know the depth of her story and how inspiring her ability to overcome loss has shown to be.

In her early 20’s and attending college, Cat’s mother was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer passing away in 2005, giving Cat a lot to work through which made focusing no her education difficult.  Less than a year after her mother’s loss Cat Zingano was pregnant and raising a newborn while going to school and during a time when she really needed help she found support and resources surrounding her with love.

Finishing school Cat started her MMA career undefeated before suffering the difficult passing of her husband in 2014.  Working each and everyday to rebuild and strengthen her life with her son as she adapts and moves forward.

Those are just a few of the tragedies that have caused Cat to focus her priorities on raising her son and the grateful blessing each day of life offers each of us.  Cat inspires many people both inside the cage and outside sports through the actions in her daily life and the ability to overcome tragedy that she has been able to prove is possible.

This year Cat awarded Anna Wiggins of Indianapolis, IN as the second $10,000 Overcoming Loss scholarship winner on Bold.org   Anna’s story is emotionally moving as she lost her entire family as a child in the Democratic Republic of the Congo before being adopted by a family in the USA.  Anna will be attending Howard University to study criminology and sociology after which she plans to attend law school and become a lawyer to fight for human rights of marginalized people.
