BENEFITING: Haymakers For Hope

EVENT: Haymakers for Hope Boston 2013

EVENT DATE: May 16, 2013

THE STORY:

TO PURCHASE TICKETS: CLICK HERE

 

Rocket Scientist, MIT professor, Entrepreneur, - it wasn't until a few years ago that an overweight out of shape father of 3 was introduced to Crossfit and started using another word to describe himself - Athlete.  That changed my life, the physical challenge and comraderie were something that had been missing in my life, and have helped me face some incredible personal challenges this past year.  About 9 months ago I began to get interested in learning how to fight and heard about Haymakers for Hope, an amateur boxing event dedicated to raising money for cancer research. .  Its something I have always wanted to do, but never felt up to the challenge. 

I decided to embark on a journey of self discovery - to embrace the uncomfortable and throw my hat into a ring - to embrace the ideals of Theodore Roosevelt, and aspire to be a man "who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,…who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” 

I have decided to do this in a way that would not just benefit me but a cause that I believe in.  At this point in my life its time to give back, so I have started this journey in the context of a charity event.  Donations made on my behalf to Haymakers for Hope will go to fund cancer research at Dana Farber and The Jimmy Fund.  As with many of you, cancer has taken the lives of people close to me, in my case my grandparents.  I can think of no better cause than helping fund a future were its toll is not so heavy. I am asking you to revel in my sprained thumbs, bloody noses and occasional "mild" concussion and give generously for a worthy cause and a great fight. 

My fight takes place on May 16 at the House of Blues Boston. Tickets go on sale soon!  Your contributions to my 3 rounds can take the fight to many more.
