Since 2012 my friend Can Sonmez, who runs Artemis BJJ, has hosted a charity fundraising ‘GrappleThon’. The idea is to have people on the mat over a 24-hour period and raise funds to help a local or international charity. The recipient this year is Suicide Prevention Bristol. Everyone is welcome to join us, you can stay for a couple hours to try the full 24-hour challenge!
I was honoured to provide the artwork for the poster plus I hope to pop down for a few hours over the weekend to catch up with friends and have a few friendly rolls. More details about the event here.
I’ll update this blog article with more news. Usually, the top fundraisers all receive a T-shirt (see below) plus I tend to auction off a few things to help raise money.
