What is the Black Friday Grapplethon? This part is pretty easy. On Nov. 29th (Black Friday) there will be a 12 hour open mat in Granite City, IL (minutes from downtown St Louis) at Finney’s HIT Squad. During this open mat will are committed to having at least two people rolling from 8am to 8pm. The event will have free food and drinks for the participants and EVERYONE is welcome. We’ll have gi and nogi grapplers, kids to seniors and every skill level will be represented.
Black Friday Grapplethon is raising funds to support to Tap Cancer Out (http://www.tapcancerout.org), a jiu-jitsu based 501(c)(3) nonprofit raising awareness and funds for cancer fighting organizations on behalf of the grappling community. Tap Cancer Out is currently raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All monetary donations thru the fundraising page will be accompanied by a receipt and are tax deductible.
