Weʼre raising £250 to (as part of my company Fortem) Lower Manor Gym Sheffield, Kings Gym Leicester and Westside Boxing Gym Hounslow
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The company that I work for, Fortem, has a rich history of choosing charities to support that enhance the lives of the people within the local communities in which we work. These 3 boxing gyms work with people of all ages and often give them a focus and discipline that they can't get in other areas of their lives. Whether it's a more mature person like me trying to look after their health and keep fit, or it's a young person escaping negative distractions in their lives, these gyms provide an invaluable service. On June 10th I will be completing a 10k which is totally outside my comfort zone (those of you that know me will understand that I'm not an athlete!) but it's important for me to support this worthwhile cause and challenge myself at the same time. Huge thanks to my eldest son Jake who will be joining me for moral support on the day.
