Black Friday Grapplethon to Support Tap Cancer Out

grapplethon-posterWhat better way to work off the insane amount of over-indulging from Thanksgiving than to spend the day rolling with your friends and teammates for a good cause?

On November 29th in Granite City, IL (just outside of St. Louis), the good folks at BJJ Legends are hosting a 12-hour Grapplethon in support of our nonprofit, Tap Cancer Out. The Grapplethon is a 12-hour event—8am to 8pm—where grapplers can get together and train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Participants are encouraged to set up a fundraising page on behalf of Tap Cancer Out. By doing so, they can take part in giveaways from the events generous sponsors including Tatami Fightwear, Q5 Labs, OSS, Killer Bee Kimonos, Ronin and more! If you raise a minimum of $50 you’ll get a Meerkatsu custom-designed Grapplethon t-shirt!

Leave the politics at the door. ALL GRAPPLERS from ALL SCHOOLS are welcome: NoGi or Gi, kids and adults. Everyone is welcome.

Keep up to date on the Grapplethon St. Louis Facebook Page.
