BENEFITING: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2012
There are two reasons why I joined Haymakers for Hope. One was for the obvious reason of an incredibly respected and highly admired organization known as the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The other reason being the devotion and incredible passion that Andrew Myerson, his siblings Holly and David, and Julie Anne Kelly have in supporting the DFCI.
At the time I was approached by Andrew and company I was looking for a good reason to enter my first bout. Haymakers gave me that reason. As I train and as my body hurts and as my face hurts and shoulder and abdomen and knuckles... I envision the obstacles that the children at DFCI have to conquer on a daily basis. It really proves the point...that as I heal... and as my fight is May 17th... That not every fight ends at the bell.
Thanks to those who have supported Haymakers for Hope past and present, my trainers at the Nonantum Boxing Club, and Andrew, David, Holly, and Julie for their dedication to supporting those who work to find a cure. And Holly's awesome photography!
