BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: Fighters4Life Showcase

EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013

THE STORY:

FIGHTING FOR: The Sato Project

Chrissy is a fighter in more ways than one. In addition to being a Golden Glove winning boxer, she fights on behalf of the abused and abandoned dogs of Puerto Rico with The Sato Project, the non-profit she founded a number of years ago (and that's beneficiary of our November 16th event!).


The following profile of her comes from The Sato Project's website:

My name is Chrissy Beckles and I am fighting so these dogs do not have to. And I mean that literally not figuratively. I am a champion Amateur Boxer who fights to make a difference for these pups. I first visited Puerto Rico with my Husband, who is a stuntman and was filming on the island over six years ago.

We love dogs and were horrified at what we encountered. It is hard to visit a beach without seeing its residents; usually very cute pups who sometimes chew rocks because they are so hungry.

It broke our hearts.

We are Brits who now live and work in New York. I researched the ‘net and found a couple of rescue groups working in PR and began volunteering and donating to them. We adopted our second ‘fur child’ from a horrific situation in the Arecibo shelter in 2008.

I have been rescuing full time in Puerto Rico since 2009.
