For those who don't know me personally, I am many things, but a boxer is NOT one of them! Monday to Friday you will find me working away in my corporate job, whilst juggling family life with my spirited children and husband.
Recently, I was provided with an opportunity to have an amateur boxing fight on 15 September, at an event being hosted by our friends at Northside Boxing (Nundah). I decided to get out of my comfort zone (completely) and sign up for a fight. My motivating factor was that it would provide me an opportunity to raise much needed funds for an incredible organisation, Hummingbird House.
As a mother of two beautiful and healthy children, I am blessed with an insight into the joys of parenthood and an understanding of how precious each little person is. In my experience, there is nothing quite like the gift of a child. Whilst we have been blessed with healthy children, many are not so lucky. The work that Hummingbird House does to support seriously ill children and their families is incredible and should be recognised. I feel honoured that they are allowing me to work alongside them to raise much needed funds to continue to support the work they do. I encourage you to read about the work that the organisation does so that you can truly appreciate this cause.
So now that I have committed myself to training hard and pushing all of my physical limits for the next few months, I ask that you dig deep and support this worthy cause.
If you would like to come along and watch me participate in the Fight Night on 15 September, make sure you follow Northside Boxing on social media for further details and ticket release dates. You can get in contact by jumping on their website - www.northsideboxing.com.au*
All of your support is so greatly appreciated! Help me to smash this financial target, and I’ll do my best not to get knocked down on 15 September!
*Please note that the nature of boxing events is that fighters can, and often do, pull out of scheduled fights close to the event due to injury. Our absolute best endeavors will be used to ensure that this does not occur insofar as it is within our control, however, in the event that the fight is cancelled, funds raised will still go to Hummingbird House.
