    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Sickle Cell is a severe hereditary form of anaemia in which a mutated form of haemoglobin distorts the red blood cells into a crescent shape at low oxygen levels which can cause chronic pain and is often debilitating.

    This is extremely close to my heart as I have family members affected by this condition and also lost one of my brothers (Eman Nwosu) to sickle cell in 2013 which was probably the most painful ordeal I have ever had to endure period.

    I am trying to raise money to donate to sufferers of sickle cell.

    The event is put on by Ultra White Collar Boxing who also raise money for cancer research https://www.ultrawhitecollarboxing.co.uk/ and I would like to throw my full support behind this as again, we have all likely had someone close to us or at least known someone who has either been a victim of, or tragically lost their battle with Cancer.

    I am on an 8 week journey, putting my mind and body through rigorous training regimes, getting in shape and YES entering the squared circle in order to raise significant funds and contribute towards these wonderful causes.

    My journey has already started and I have used social media to post a number of progress updates after my grueling training regimes and working towards a UWCB boxing event on December 17th in East London's Troxy. This will be a recorded event in the backdrops of East London (the spiritual home of boxing) which I will again post here as well as continue to update regularly.

    So, please please join me in reaching my targets by putting my body on the line by sponsoring me and if you can- attending the event. If you know me, you know it promises to be an entertaining evening!

    Thanks in advance.

      Folks, I would like to sincerely thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support offered for my UWCB charity boxing bout. It wasn't easy and never promised to be, but the support shown provided me the strength to really go at it. If you were there, then you will know exactly what it was a truly entertaining night. If you sponsored, liked a post or gave words of encouragement, it all counted- TRUST ME! Pushing through injuries and pain barriers are not easy feats! We raised over a £1000 independently for charity. We are amazing!
