Josh Swain, a 22-year-old college student from Tucson, Arizona, was bored during the pandemic so he messaged others who shared his name on social media and challenged them to a duel. Josh propositioned to fellow namesakes a duel 2021 style, "We fight, whoever wins gets to keep the name, everyone else has to change their name. You have a year to prepare, good luck".
Within a year the #JoshFight became a reality. Hundreds showed up at Air Park in Lincoln—random coordinates were picked, which is how they ended up in Lincoln, Nebraska—to participate in the light-hearted pool noodle duel. Hundreds of Josh's showed up and in the end, the winner was 4-year-old, Josh Vinson. Josh is receiving treatment at the Children’s Hospital and Medical Center Foundation in Omaha. The gathering raised $8000 for the hospital and also hundreds of canned goods for the local food bank.
