Massachusetts – 2018

November 17th, 2018 | Danvers, MA

On November 17th, 2018 we we returned to St. John’s Prep in Danvers, MA, for our sixth annual Tap Cancer Out Massachusetts BJJ Open! This has always been one of our most supportive tournaments, but we didn’t expect what our 2018 edition had in store!

Cody Alessi from Atlas Jiu-Jitsu raised an ASTOUNDING $7,657!! This not only made him our Top Individual and Top Children’s Fundraiser, but it cemented Cody in our record books! He’s now our highest children’s fundraiser ever and our #3 fundraiser of all time.

START BJJ (New Hampshire) did a tremendous job fundraising as a team, taking home the Top Fundraising Team award by raising $22,043. Much of that was raised at their own fundraising event called the Armbar-a-Thon (and Kick-a-thon). This also makes them our #4 Top Fundraising Team of all-time and our #1 Fundraising Team in 2018!

Ultimately 270 transacting fundraisers and 2,680 generous donors helped us raise more than $170,000 in direct donations—the most EVER! In total, the tournament raised more than $192,000!

In the six years we’ve been in Massachusetts, we’ve welcomed 834 transacting fundraisers, 8,008 donors, and fundraised nearly than $430,000!
