Giving Back To Our Community

Seth has been doing Jiu Jitsu at MPR for almost 3 years. Every year, Seth and his teammates raise money for a Jiu Jitsu event called Tap Cancer Out that donates all profits to different cancer organizations. The most recent one was for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, which Seth raised $750 on his own and as a team, his gym raised $13,175. Seth and his team did fundraisers outside of different restaurants and local businesses, selling lemonade and raising awareness about childhood cancer.

There are many other considerations for children being active in an online community, such as risk to privacy, identity theft potential, and the vulnerability of exposure to child predators or sex-trafficking.

This link is a great guide for many of the items noted above.
