Charlotte – 2019
June 22nd, 2019 | Johnson C. Smith University
On June 22nd, 2019, we headed to the campus of Johnson C. Smith University for our first ever Tap Cancer Out Charlotte BJJ Open!
Josh Oldfield from The Stillness Gym held off Jillian Chalke from Checkmat by only $450 to earn our Top Overall Fundraiser award, raising $2,681! Both earned all the swag including free entry, a rashguard (or hoodie), backpack, and Gi for raising more than $2,000.
Our Michael Corb Top Children’s Fundraiser award was won by Evan Tyler of Checkmat who raised $1,350 as our #4 overall fundraiser.
Checkmat made a late surge to overtake Team Sauer and win our Top Fundraising Team Award, raising $6,283 thanks to 12 transacting team members.
Ultimately 67 transacting fundraisers and 494 generous donors helped us raise $29,131 in direct donations. In total, the tournament raised more than $36,000!
