Get Involved

We’re so happy that you’re interested in getting involved. Use your creativity and passion to take an active role by hosting an event, fundraising, donating or spreading awareness for our cause. Here are a few of the options.

Host a Grapplethon at Your School

Without question THE most impactful thing you could do if you train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to host a Grapplethon. A Grapplethon is an independently organized BJJ event that commonly features mini-seminars, drilling sessions, and open mats, with breaks for food, giveaways, and more. Participants are encouraged to fundraise with our user-friendly online platform, where they can earn free entry to the event, t-shirts, rashguards, and even a free Gi!

We’ve developed a comprehensive framework to help volunteer hosts put on a great event, including a downloadable hosting toolkit, marketing materials (we’ll design and print your posters!), and sponsors who will send you raffle and door prizes. More importantly, we’ll manage the online fundraising platform and fundraiser email marketin

Set Up a Fundraising Page (for any reason!)

If you’d like to raise funding critical to the fight against cancer on our behalf (but can’t make it to one of our tournaments), you can always set up a fundraising page of your own!

**If you’re fundraising for a specific tournament, you’ll get a fundraising page as soon as you complete your registration. Do NOT set up a fundraising page on Facebook or anywhere else. 

The easiest way is to set up a Facebook fundraiser. It notifies your entire network about your fundraiser and doesn’t take any fees from donations made on your behalf. You simply search for Tap Cancer Out, choose us, and people can donate to your fundraiser in just a few clicks without ever leaving Facebook.

No Facebook? No worries. You can head over to our fundraising platform, click “Become a Fundraiser“, walk through a few simple steps to customize your personal fundraising page and you’re good to go! You can easily set a goal and invite your network to contribute!

This is perfect for anyone who wants to donate a birthday or compete in an event, even if it’s not BJJ related. We’ve had a number of competitors fundraise in advance of BJJ tournaments, Warrior Dashes/Spartan Races, and even 5Ks.

Donate or Shop Our Online Store

If you’re simply looking to help us raise funds (which we need!), you can quickly and easily provide a tax-deductible donation. You can also browse our store and purchase a T-shirt or two!

Volunteer

We’ll be heading out to tournaments nationwide in the coming months, and we’ll need volunteers to help! If you’d like to help us spread the word at your local event, please send us an email at information {at} tapcancerout.org with your information.
