As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are all experiencing uncertain times. In light of the current situation, in consultation with our partners and the FTEC Fight Team, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Fight To End Cancer for 2020. We are working to reestablish dates for and will be in touch with all event partners, sponsors and attendees when new dates have been identified.

[COVID-19 UPDATE] Fight To End Cancer 2020

I am beyond thrilled that I’ve been selected to be part of #FTEC2018’s fight team.

I will be spending the next 7 months training with 9 other ‘non-boxing professionals’ – and on June 2, 2018 I will be stepping into the ring to ‘literally’ fight to end cancer.

In June of 2016, my mother Iris Collins – one of the most vibrant, healthy, amazing and giving people I have ever known – was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and within 10 weeks she was gone.  I am fighting for her – as well as for the countless others I know who have been impacted by this terrible disease.

Anyone who knows me knows that before this July I had never seen the inside of a gym.  But if you are looking for me between now and next June, that’s likely where you’ll find me.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the support – I have a very lofty goal but know that together we can do it!

Please consider donating to this very worthy cause and giving me that extra motivation to keep going, AND consider joining us on June 2nd, 2018 – #FTEC2018 – Gala Information and Tickets

Thank you so much for your support!
