BENEFITING: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2012
When I was first approached about participating in Haymakers for Hope, I wasn’t totally on board. The idea of inviting my friends and family to come watch me get hit in the face for 3 rounds wasn’t an opportunity I was particularly excited about. However, after participating in the event last year, I realized it was less about throwing punches (or in my case taking punches), and more about raising money and awareness for cancer research. I am inspired by all of the people that take the fight to cancer each day and couldn’t be more excited to get in the ring and do my part to fight for the cause.
On May 17th, I will be stepping into the ring for the second time for Haymakers for Hope. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. If you would like to come and watch me box in my second amateur fight you can purchase a ticket here and that would be your donation. I know I recently asked most of you to donate to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, but this time I am doing something a little more challenging than shaving my head.
