My Message

On November 3rd I will be going to toe to toe and hit for hit with a local celebrity and putting everything on the line for charity. What is this crazy initiative called you might ask? Boxing for Community, all proceeds support the United Way and men in our community.

How am I preparing for this feat? The United Way and Geoff from Madkatz Boxing Club are putting me through conditioning and boxing training at least twice a week until November (I started training the end of July) and are helping 20 non-boxers to learn the skills and trades needed to put on a great show.

What would motivate me to get involved in a sport I know nothing about? If you know me, I’m not one to back down from a challenge, getting fit for a good cause is never a bad idea, but my biggest motivator is the men in my life. I have a great supportive husband who has gotten used to the idea that I never say no when asked to help the community, and I have two little boys under the age of 5, Ethan and Logan. 

Like most parents I want the best for my boys in life.  Proceeds from this fundraising event supports programs and services for sons, uncles, dads, granddads, brothers, and fathers in our community. From building better dads, repairing families by providing mental health and addiction recovery support, engaging male youth in community, and ensuring seniors stay health and stay in their homes are all ways to ensure we have a healthy vibrant community. Help me help the men by donating to the cause! Donations $20 or more will receive a tax receipt for your contribution.

Thanks for your support and wish me luck! (forget that, wish the poor women who has to meet in in the ring luck, she’s going down!)
