What: The concept behind a GrappleThon is very simple: at least two people are grappling at any one point over a predetermined period.
When: 14:00 on Saturday 15th April 2017 until 14:00 on Sunday 16th April 2017.
Where: At our central location in St Paul’s, which is MYGYM Bristol, Unit 4B Dean Street, Bristol, BS2 8SF
How: To take part, simply turn up and roll. If you want to earn a fantastic custom Meerkatsu t-shirt (kindly provided by Tatami Fightwear), there’s only one way: join the fundraising team on MyDonate! Full guide on how to do that here.
Why: We will be raising money to support SARSAS. They provide an essential helpline for survivors of rape and sexual abuse. To learn more about SARSAS’s important work, have a read of their website, here.
Donate: Head to our MyDonate team page, here.
