A team of passionate Jiu-Jitsu lovers are about to prove their passion for something else– awareness for men’s health. On Nov. 22, Gravity BJJ in Surrey, BC will hold their third annual Movember Rollathon.

For 24 hours straight, there will be at least two people sparring on the mats. At 9 a.m. there will be cross-training for the kids and the adults will step up and train in a class at 10 a.m. By 8 p.m. there will be a Mustache Strut-Off Competition to keep the mood light along with raffles from sponsors.

This charity event will raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research, a topic that doesn’t get enough attention. Organizer Sofie Zambas has run these events successfully twice now and the outcomes have always proven that each year it can make a difference.
