Received the following announcement and attachment from Coach Al Simpson of the Charlotte Boxing Academy:
Hello. I hope you have been doing well and finding time to be with family during this rainy summer! This is our next event in Sept. (see attachment). The event is in honor and memory of 9/11 and 1st responders (police, sheriff, fire and highway patrol), which this year falls on a Tuesday, but the event will be held on that Fri/Sat. This is a charity event where the prize awards will go to selected local charities. Example: 1st place $500, 2nd place $400, 3rd place $300 and 4th place team $200. Each will receive a team trophy, but the money will go to their choice of charity. So it will be 4 people from each dept. (police, sheriff, fire, and highway patrol), and they will box each other in 1min-3rds, with safety headgears and gloves on (need to avoid injuries and keep it safe as possible, but fun!). If you have any thoughts please let me know! Always trying to show the kids to do positive things in the community! Can also do a winter coat or food drive! - Coach Al Simpson.
Cost: 5-14 years $5.00 / 15 years and up $10
This is a very worthwhile event for our community. Please share this post with friends, your Facebook, Twitter, etc.
