Raleigh – 2018

September 8th, 2018 | Raleigh, NC

On September 8th, 2018 we reached our first stop on our Grappling for Good Tour – Raleigh, NC, at the Dorton Arena – for our Tap Cancer Out Raleigh BJJ Open.

Sonny Nguyen from Team Gustavo Machado took home both the Top Fundraiser and Top Children’s Fundraiser trophies by raising an astounding $6,062, putting him sixth all-time among our individual fundraisers and second all-time for our children’s (under 16) fundraisers. Gustavo Machado also took home the Top Fundraising Team trophy by raising $11,050 thanks to its 15 transacting fundraisers.

Ultimately 78 transacting fundraisers and 475 generous donors helped us raise more than $32,000 in direct donations. In total, the tournament raised more than $40,000.
