The non-profit Tap Cancer Out raised more funds on Saturday, Aug. 16 to beat cancer through the support of the grappling community. At the Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open in Danvers, MA the tournament gathered over $20,000.
The organization is proud to announce that they will be donating a gift of $97,500 to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in order to fund two research fellows in 2014 at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital. This is the largest gift to St. Baldrick’s Foundation ever by a charity partner.
Prior to this beneficiary, Tap Cancer Out spent two years funding the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in which they raised $85,000.
