BENEFITING: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2012
I got involved with Haymakers for Hope after meeting co-founder and cancer survivor, Julie Kelly, at Striking Beauties boxing gym in North Attleboro. I had been intrigued by the prospect of getting into the ring for a real match and after having so many friends and family members touched by cancer I loved the idea of using my first fight as an opportunity to raise awareness for this great cause!!
I have been in the gym seemingly non-stop with my training partner Jessica, dedicated trainer Zach Reay, and our whole support system at Striking Beauties! You can follow my training progress and general boxing musings at http://nora-and-jessfight4hope.blogspot.com/.
Help me and Haymakers for Hope fight cancer. Please donate what you can or come see my fight live May 17th 2012 at the House of Blues Boston. Tickets are on sale now. Thank you to all who help join this fight!
