“Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer”- who, what, when, where, and why….
Who:  Wrestlers, promoters, volunteers, and fans.  All of us coming together to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, and celebrate the memory of a friend.

What: A series of fundraising events and auctions culminating in a one-night professional wrestling event, where all funds raised will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

When: Official fundraising towards the large event kicked off on April 30th – and will continue until the one night spectacular in mid-August.  Official fundraising events will continue from now until that date.

Where:At various events in both Ottawa, Ontario (C*4 and TBA) and the United States (Interspecies Wrestling).  More details to come soon!

Why:This past April, many people involved with the local independent wrestling scene were struck hard when Francois “Phrank” Morin died after a brief but intense battle with cancer.  A close and loved friend to some, a colleague to others, and always smiling face to others – Phrank was an important part of many peoples lives.    On April 1st, when he passed away, plans approved by Phrank himself, were already in motion for a fundraising event for the Canadian Cancer Society this summer.  Following his death, the event was decided to take place and raise funds in Phrank’s name.  Our hope is to raise as much money as possible for the Canadian Cancer Society, and join them in the mission to one day eradicate cancer from this earth.

More details to come soon.  Website under construction - for now however, please "Like" our facebook page, by visiting www.fighting-back.ca

Will donations be accepted for the Canadian Cancer Society at any C*4/ISW or other shows?

Donations are currently being collected to cover costs associated with Fighting Back 2011 and will be accepted on June 17th (C*4), and on July 23rd (ISW).  As well as another event TBA currently set for mid July. Special sales / auctions will be set up for these events to raise funds for the August event.

All fundraising at this point is to cover costs associated with the actual Fighting Back 2011 event (this August) - which in turn will be donating all funds raised from that event, to the Canadian Cancer Society.  We have the full support of the Ottawa branch of the Canadian Cancer Society for this event.

All funding initiatives for the event will be announced shortly.

If you would like to donate, or know of potential sponsors, please feel free to PM us here, or email fighting-back@hotmail.com

Inter Species Wrestling Press Release:



For Immediate Release:

Mike Rotch
Inter Species Wrestling

FIGHTING BACK - WRESTLING WITH CANCER

Inter Species Wrestling would like to proudly announce our involvement in something very special - Fighting Back - Wrestling with Cancer - a tribute show to our fallen friend and family member - Phrank Morin, also known as Stinky the Homeless Guy.  He fought until the very end, and now, we will continue the fight in his memory.

Fighting Back is fully endorsed by the Canadian Cancer Society - and all proceeds from the event will donated to them in Phrank's name.  In order to raise enough money to cover costs, and ensure the maximum donation amount - we will be doing our part at Burger King of the Ring.

CUPCAKE SALE - For a minimum donation of $2 - you can purchase a fresh n' tasty treat, while helping out.

HEAD SHAVING - Before the show starts - a few of the Inter Species Wrestling staffers (including myself) will be shaving their heads - in hopes of being able to donate our hair for wigs for cancer patients.  We are collecting monetary donations as an incentive for this to happen.   

My personal donation page is located on facebook at - http://tinyurl.com/rotchyhairdrive

CANCER STINKS T-SHIRTS - We will be selling these shirts in memory of Phrank at BKOTR for $20.  They feature his own drawn caricature of himself as Stinky - along with the words "CANCER STINKS" on them.



GENERAL DONATION BOX - We will also be accepting donations at the merchandise table.  Anyone who donates more than $5 will receive a credit on the DVD release of Burger King of the Ring.   

That's what's going down at the July Inter Species Wrestling event.  That's not all we're doing, however.  In the coming weeks - we will be posting a few very special items up for auction.  Some "must haves" for any Inter Species Wrestling fan - all for a good cause.

And now, I will tell you what they are...

BONER JAM MAIN EVENT BANNER - A 2x5 foot vinyl banner featuring the main event matchup from Boner Jam - Colt Cabana vs. Giant Tiger - drawn and designed by me.  After the show - we had it signed by everyone who appeared on the Boner Jam event - from El Generico to Llakor to COlt Cabana himself.  It's a pretty sweet piece of business, and you can own it.

I have no good photos of it - but it can be seen prominently in this video -
BONER JAM - DVD Teaser #1


And now - the big one...

THE ORIGINAL INTER SPECIES TITLE/OTHER TITLE - That's right.  One of the biggest pieces of Inter Species Wrestling histry - right here.  Our original "Inter Species Title" - which was trashed, found, and later renamed and made famous by Stinky The Homeless Guy as the "Other Title."  It's one of those things we don't want to let go of - but if we can get a good chunk of change put towards the Fighting Back event - it's worth it.

Title belt is pictured below.  Both auctions will feature better photos, of course...



And that's what we're doing.  Stay tuned to www.fighting-back.ca for info on the show, and other fundraising events - and PLEASE spread the word.
