BENEFITING: Haymakers For Hope

EVENT: Haymakers for Hope Boston 2013

EVENT DATE: May 16, 2013

THE STORY:

TO PURCHASE TICKETS: CLICK HERE

 

When I first heard about Haymakers For Hope, I was overtaken with two conflicting emotions: excitement and trepidation. The latter, of course, is natural considering the fact that few of us have ever boxed three two-minute rounds in a ring at The House of Blues in Boston in front of 1,800 screaming fans. The former, however, was aided and abetted by Jimmy McGrail, a friend who competed at the 2012 event. After listening to his stories about training and the amazing group of people associated with Haymakers For Hope, I was hooked. 

Soon, I learned that two friends-of-friends had fought in previous years and that an acquaintance of mine was also signed up for this year's card. I've done some crazy athletic stunts in the past, but this one has to be the most daring. Whatever bravery I need to muster, though, pales in comparison to the struggles of several people I know who have battled cancer in the past. I am fighting for them as they've inspired me with courage and candor throughout their treatments and recoveries. 

Beyond the personal challenge of conditioning oneself for a bout, it is the mission of supporting The Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute that makes taking a few punches on May 16 all the more rewarding. I'm fortunate to be training under Dan Parks and John Ruiz at The Quietman Boxing Gym and to have Jimmy McGrail, my aformentioned friend from Sullivan's Pub in Charlestown, as my mentor. With your help, we'll all be part of a team that is fighting cancer together. 

Thank you for your donation. I hope to see you after my fight to take in a few pints...of ale, not blood!
