Tap Cancer Out, a Jiu-Jitsu based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, will host a grappling tournament to benefit the fight against pediatric cancer.

The event, Tap Cancer Out Winter Open, will be held at the University of San Diego Sports Center on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015. This will be Tap Cancer Out’s fifth Jiu-Jitsu Open since 2013 and its first event in California.

In addition to merchandise sales, sponsorships, and cash donations, Tap Cancer Out raises money and awareness by hosting grappling tournaments.

Recently, at the Tap Cancer Out Boston Summer Open, the organization announced that they will donate over $97,000, the largest gift to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation by a charity partner.

For this tournament there will be male and female divisions in both gi and no-gi. There will be no registration on the day of the tournament so you must register prior.

There are two ways to register:

If you are able to raise $250 or more in donations via the Tap Cancer Out fundraising platform then you can compete for free.

If you choose to pay the registration fee, you can register now for the early bird discount of $40 per person for one division or $56 per person for two division. After Dec. 17 the registration fee will be go up.

  1. A large part of the populace uses cancer wristbands to raise funds and creating awareness against different type of cancers including breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, leukaemia and ovarian cancer. Wearing specific coloured awareness wristbands helps bring awareness against each type of cancer.
