Hi, this is Andy. My Brother James and I are to partake in this Kickboxing challenge recently titled 'Ready to Rum-bull'. The aim of this is to raise £10,000 for the Impact Young Heroes’ charity. The charity was set up in 2005, with the aim of helping vulnerable young people living with cancer. This event will take place on Tuesday 15th September 2009*
In the photo above we are pictured with Kerry Louise Norbury - seven-time world kickboxing champion along with Bradford Bulls players Jamie Langley and Wayne Godwin who are hoping to challenge us on the day. We will be taking centre stage on the Grattan Stadium pitch, home to the Bradford Bulls Rugby League Club from 1pm till 8pm to battle our way through 100 rounds of what is sure to be an extremely hard and gruelling challenge. We are training very hard for this event, and your help and support would be greatly appreciated.
For those who don’t know, James has Downs Syndrome. He is Rugby League (in particular the Bulls!) and Martial arts mad, and was delighted when we arranged to do it. We have had fantastic support in getting this far, but your sponsorship is the key to us reaching our target.
Your Support will get us there, Thanks.” James and Andy Olsen
