I am writing today to reach out and ask for your help. I’ve decided to undertake the grueling (yet rewarding) challenge of participating in Haymakers for Hope’s 2013 all women’s boxing event. Haymakers for Hope is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that organizes charity boxing events to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
Cancer is an ugly disease. It has impacted many people I know; family members, co-workers, clients and friends. Some have amazing success stories, others not so much. I’d like to help change that. Living in a cancer free world may be a bit unrealistic so for now I’d settle for more success stories.
I am committed to raising $3,000 for Haymakers for Hope, and hopefully with your help can meet and even exceed that goal. Over the next few months, I will be training to step into the ring and literally fight for a cure. So far I’m feeling strong, energized and ready to take on my first practice fight this weekend. I will most definitely keep you updated throughout the process with how my training is going.
Haymakers for Hope, founded ins 2010, has sponsored for charity-boxing events in Boston and New York City and raised over $1,200,000 for cancer research. It is with the help of generous donors such as yourselves that together we fight to give cancer the knockout punch. Thank you very much for your support. I hope we can enjoy this journey together.
No matter how large or small, your donation will go a long way toward knocking out cancer. To make a donation to my cause click over to Kristen’s Fundraising Page.
