BTOOC is more than just an event where I go to spar with friends. It’s where the whole stick fighting community around the world comes together to do their thing for a worthy cause. I don’t know many people who have not had loved ones affected by cancer…I’ve lost more than a few friends and two family members so far, and that means one day it might be me facing that battle. I hope that if it comes to it, I face it with the dignity of those I’ve lost. I hope to demonstrate as much character in my day-to-day life as these heros have. This is what I think about when I ready myself for my fights. I might get bruised, or break my hand again…but next to the bigger battle it’s a small thing.
Please sponsor me as I take the fight to the mats at Beat the Crap Out of Cancer!
