On November 22, 2014 VIBJJ participated in the Movember Roll-A-Thon at Gravity BJJ in Surrey BC. Sofie Zambas and Logan Lidemark hosted the event in the hopes of raising funds for the fight against cancer. The event was by donation and ran for 24 hours. There were many participants from most if not all BJJ schools from the lower mainland including North Van BJJ team mates Powell River BJJ. We rolled for a few hours and somewhere in between there was a strut off in which the best strut showing off the best mustache won a gift from a number of the Roll-A-Thon sponsors. Matt won third place, and received a generous gift basket of granola and assorted healthy treats! Check out Gravity BJJ at www.Gravitybjj.ca.
On a side note, Matt fought at the Steveston Judo Championship winning a bronze medal after fighting up 20 lbs to -66kg the morning of the 22nd. Congratulations!
