Revolution Championship Wrestling hosts annual slam cancer benefit event
SOUTH BEND, Ind.,--Get ready to rumble… for a good cause. Local wrestlers are taking it to the ring, raising money in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Revolution Championship Wrestling presents the 15th Annual Slam Cancer Benefit show Saturday night at the Goodson Event Center.
The event is in the memory of organizer, Jerry Wilson’s father, James Wilson, who passed away fighting pancreatic cancer in 2004. Now, Jerry is fighting cancer back, raising money for the Center for Hospice Care in a pro-wrestling tournament.
Wilson says he chose to give back to the hospice because of the excellent care his father received, stating it was the only organization that helped them out during the difficult time. He watched wrestling with his father and picked it up 16 years ago.
The event will have nine matches and the annual James Wilson tournament. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., bell time is 7:30 p.m. Children 4-years-old and under are free. Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased here.
