THE STORY:

Dear Friends –

Last year I went to the 2nd annual Boston Haymakers for Hope event. I was curious to watch a friend fight in an amateur boxing event to raise money for a great cause. I enjoyed the event so much I decided that night I would like to participate.

The event combines three things that appeal to me; The Charity, Challenge and Experience.

Charity: The odds are 1 in 2 of us will have cancer in our lifetime and today 1 in 4 will die from this disease. It's more than likely that you have lost a friend or loved one to cancer. During my life I have watched a number of people close to me battle cancer and unfortunately many have been lost. Two years ago my father was told he had kidney cancer and as a result of medical advancements he beat it and today is healthy. With each year cancer research continues to make great strides. A diagnosis 20 years ago that was life threatening can now be overcome and while a complete cure may never be found cancer research can help to extend the life of a love one by a week, month or years.

Challenge: Unlike other challenges I've faced such as preparing for a race or taking on a long par 5, boxing has been the ultimate challenge. In a race you're goal is based on your own time. In golf, attempting a par 5 in two and if not maybe three or four.  In boxing you are preparing for 3 grueling rounds and trying to survive in the ring against another opponent.

Experience: As with many sports until you try, you really can't appreciate how good the athletes who participate in them are. This is certainly true of Boxing. I have had a once in a lifetime experience to train at Fitness Advantage in Medfield through the generosity of Kathy McLean, work out with a bunch of supportive athletes, survive the challenges of Brian Leary and have the opportunity to learn from an inspirational trainer, Sione Finau. Thank you to everyone.

I hope that my commitment to this event will help motivate you to support this worthwhile charity and support me on May 16th.

Thank you,

Robin
