BENEFITING: Haymakers For Hope

EVENT: Haymakers for Hope Boston 2013

EVENT DATE: May 16, 2013

THE STORY:

TO PURCHASE TICKETS: CLICK HERE

 

What can I say about Haymakers for Hope? Co-founders Julie Anne Kelly and Andrew Myerson are an inspiring pair, with an infectious passion for fighting for a cure for cancer.

 

Julie is a two-time 132-pound NYC Golden Gloves champ who’s been cancer-free for 9 years; Andrew is a former amateur boxer who lost several friends to cancer before he was out of high school. Their idea, to create a charity boxing event to raise money for Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund, Haymakers for Hope, has raised more than $200,000 in the fight against cancer in only two years.

 

After meeting Julie at Nonantum Boxing Club a while back, and talking to Haymakers veteran (and my Haymakers mentor) John Sementelli, I couldn’t resist offering to get punched in the face for cancer. After all, I figure, I’ve been punched in the face for less (much less).  

 

So, rather than ask you to support a cause while I run the Boston Marathon, bike Cape Cod, swim the dirty water of the upper Charles after bungee jumping off the Zakim Bridge, I’m asking you to buy tickets to this event or donate to this cause in exchange for me promising to spend 3 rounds exchanging punches with someone who’s as game as I am about supporting the fight against cancer. (Although “game” isn’t quite the word Cristine has been using to describe me lately.)

 

The gig is May 16 in the House of Blues in Boston, and it’ll have all the glitz and glamour of a big-time fight – ring announcer, walk-in music, men in shiny black robes…the whole deal. You might even hear the Dropkick Murphys a time or two.

 

IF YOU ACT NOW, I’LL INCLUDE YOUR NAME IN A RAFFLE TO WIN A 16GB iPOD TOUCH PRE-LOADED WITH MY WALK-IN MUSIC (IT’LL BE A SURPRISE).

 

Thanks for considering it. It’s going to be a fun night - and for those who can’t make it, I promise to post before and after head-and-shoulder shots here so you can see what you missed.
