DANVERS, Massachusetts — Rockland’s Flow Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu took part in a two-day tournament to help support cancer research funding while experiencing impressive mat success.
Flow had a large contingent on the two days as children competed on Saturday 20 November and adults competed on Sunday 21 November.
The Flow results include:
Children: Lyla Tolman — gold. Ayden Moores – silver. Austin White Ortiz – silver. Rhys Hatch – silver. Olympia Strong – silver. Bryce Gushee-Brown – bronze. Adrian Defoe – bronze. Brayden Strong – bronze.
Adults: Hayleigh Martz — gold. Meg Gleasner – gold. Sandra Martz – silver. Samantha Jones Bronze. Bryan Clement – bronze.

Tap Cancer Out’s website states that the group is a Jiu-Jitsu-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that creates awareness and funds for cancer-fighting organizations on behalf of the struggling community. The organization does this mainly by organizing the ‘world’s most philanthropic fundraising tournaments’, but also through direct donations and sales of merchandise. Since 2011, it has hosted dozens of tournaments and donated over $2,250,000 to beneficiaries.
