This coming weekend I will be taking part in the 24 hour roll-a-thon at Gracie Jiu Jitu Cape Town, raising funds for cancer sufferers/survivors and a local hospice. If I’m honest though, the main reason I am doing this is my jiu jitsu buddy, Juan Poerstamper.
Juan has been dealing with Cancer since around 2012. He’s had a rough time of it over the past five years, finally being declared clear (again) earlier this year.
What amazes me about him is how friendly and positive he has been through this all. He is an amazing young man and I am happy to do anything to assist him.
In part, the roll-a-thon this weekend is raising funds to help him pay for his increasing medical expenses. As I am fortunate enough to have a slightly international reach, I would ask that anyone who follows my blog please consider donating, even $5, towards this cause.
When you make the donation, please ensure to add your name so that I can make sure to credit you in the follow up post on Monday.
