Hey everybody it’s Mark! I need to put the keyboard down for a moment in favor of a special announcement – I will be competing in a tournament called Tap Cancer Out 2022, which will be held February 12th in San Marcos, California.
It’s for a special cause, if you will, for kids with cancer. Specifically, Alex’s Lemonade Stand and more. This is definitely a different kind of grappling competition but the same sport still applies…Jiu Jitsu.
So please check it out. I would really appreciate any monetary donation that you could do for this organization. Thank you in advance and I appreciate your time.
After an individual campaign of $800+ it was time to get to work.
I started out strong but was unable to maintain a dominant series and ended the match through points. There are several personal lessons for me on this one and as long as I am of sound mind and body, I will continue to pursue my development in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
That said, the overall event exceeded it’s goal with a final tally of $150K+. My donation page is still very much active, so please consider a donation to Tap Cancer Out which directly benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand and their mission to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.
In 2020, I’ll be fighting. However, this is no ordinary fight. I am taking part in the Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open and along with my teammates at Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu Carlsbad and competitors, I’ll be fighting for those who are in the fight of their lives – children with cancer.
Since 2012, tournaments like this one have helped Tap Cancer Out raise and donate more than $1.36 million for various cancer causes including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, St. Baldrick’s, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
I would be honored if you’d support my fundraising efforts with a donation. It’s secure and 100% tax deductible. If you’d prefer to pay by check, please mail to: Tap Cancer Out, 2 Enterprise Dr, Suite 307, Shelton, CT 06484.
If you can’t make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and/or Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!
Thanks so much for your generosity!
