This year Media Fight Night 2019 will primarily be supporting a new charity that is close to our hearts, In Your Corner.
In Your Corner is a charity run by qualified boxing & healthcare professionals who engage with individuals and focus on improving and managing participants mental health symptoms using a fully integrated approach which tackles personal & social issues.
In the South East and Kent 14.8% of people aged 16-74 are suffering from some sort of mental health disorder and there’s an increasing awareness of the growing number of children and young people identify with mental health and emotional problems in school. 55% of schools in the areas ‘frequently’ or ‘very frequently’ were presented with issues relating to children’s mental health.
The In Your Corner Team have an ambition of taking their programme into more hospitals and schools and ultimately to create a community hub where people can come and train, feel safe and get the support they need.
Media Fight Night is committed to facilitating and supporting this ambition.
