BENEFITING: Haymakers For Hope

EVENT: Belles of the Brawl 2014

EVENT DATE: Oct 02, 2014

THE STORY:

I began boxing this year at age 35 after following my husband to a class at Boston Boxing and Fitness in Brighton. I was hooked on the physical challenge immediately and decided to participate in Team Training, a grueling 3-month program that culminated in an exhibition fight night at the gym in April. Stepping in to the ring was utterly terrifying, but completely addictive! Boxing is far and away the most challenging, humbling thing I’ve ever done, but also the most fulfilling and rewarding on both a mental and physical level.

One misconception about boxing is that it’s a solitary sport, but that could not be farther from the truth. You may fight alone, but there is never a time, whether in practice or in the ring, that you don’t feel the support, concern and guidance of your coaches and fellow fighters. Having never participated in any organized athletic activity on any level before this, I never understood what it means to be part of a team. It is without question one of the greatest joys I’ve known. I’m so grateful to Ed LaVache and the amazing coaches at Boston Boxing and to Cody Harter of Harter Strength and Conditioning for their time and support.

Soon after my exhibition, I attended Haymakers for Hope at the House of Blues. The uniqueness, professionalism and joy of the event were positively infectious, and the alumni I spoke with glowed palpably when speaking of their experience. I was thrilled when an opportunity arose so quickly to become involved. The quality and character of the people behind this organization are truly impressive, and the survival stories I’ve heard along the way inspire me to train as hard as I can to be worthy of every dollar of every donation I receive.

Haymakers for Hope has raised over $2 million for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund in just a few short years through charity boxing events that give everyday men and women the chance to literally fight for a cure for cancer. I am blessed to have the opportunity to participate in Belles of the Brawl and honored to represent Boston Boxing in support of such a worthy cause.

Your support is absolutely critical to fulfill the Haymakers for Hope mission to knock out cancer by giving researchers the resources needed to fully focus their efforts on finding a cure. Please join my team and help me exceed my goal of $4,000 by donating or purchasing a ticket to this amazing event.

I look forward to seeing you on October 2 at Belles of the Brawl!
