As Fighting Back 2 came to a close on Friday night, an announcement was made - that we had raised "$13 000 and counting" for the Canadian Cancer Society.

And count we did.

Before I reveal the final total of WE all raised - I want to take a moment to say a few words.  

On Friday night, for the second consecutive year, the Ottawa wrestling community came together and put on a monster show.  Fans were loud.  Wrestlers worked hard.  Staff helped the night go smoothly.   A community came together to try and make a difference.   A community rose to the challenge to not only meet the first Fighting Back event, but completely topple it.  

On Friday August 17th, in memory of Phrank Morin, we came together to "fight back" against a terrible evil.  We fought back in his memory.   We fight back for all of those around us who have been equally as affected by the disease, and those who have been touched by it.  As a community, we have taken action.  

This event could not have been done without the support of wrestling promotions and fans across Ontario, Quebec, and the United States.   Our community of independent wrestling, to which we all belong - one which we all must foster and build and help grow - and in turn, make the future of Fighting Back stronger and stronger.

Thank you to everybody who was a part of this year's event.  Plans are already underway for Fighting Back III.  An announcement will be forthcoming in a couple of months at the latest.

And now what you have all come here for...  It is all of us at Fighting Back's pleasure to announce that we did indeed continue counting on Friday night.  Every penny in the coin donation jar.  Every bill from the cash box.  Every generous donation to the CCS.  Every nickle in couch cushions.  We counted.

The final tally for Fighting Back 2: Wrestling with Cancer is..... $14 000.

Thank you for your support.
