Personal Challenge

Hi Everyone - sometimes you have to fight for your life; and fortunately I've been selected to help literally fight for kids in a surgical centre in Cambodia who are fighting for THEIR lives. On 29th April in Singapore, I will go up against an opponent who is doing the same, as part of a 10 bout Fight Night, Black Tie evening to raise finds for these kids in need. Whilst I need your support for the fight, I'm looking for your financial support too if you can afford it.

My Story

 I've had a lifetime of physical and mental tests thrown at me by life, as most of you will know. As recent as 12 months ago, I had both knees replaced, which was an excruciating experience. But that, and everything prior pales when you see the plight of these kids in this surgical centre going through challenges every day. In an environment still littered with mines from conflict, the centre provides much needed surgical support to the community there. But - the demand for their services is massive and they need funds.

It's time...time for me to combine my love of sport, aggression on the field and a desire as a Father to so something for these kids. Perhaps it's guilt for the loss of innocence and physical function of children that I saw in the Middle East and Afghanistan and couldn't help; or maybe it's 'just the right thing to do' - either way, I'm getting in the ring to 'go' it against whoever they put up.

I am their oldest boxer on record at 54. I'm fit, and I've trained hard. I've been incredibly well supported and trained here. I know what I'm fighting for and I don't intend to stop until I've beaten the other bloke into submission. I have no emotion about that. Job's On !

If it turns out that he wins, you will know that he has had to knock me out to claim a win coz I'm never giving up. I'm just not going to stop. As Mike Tyson once said - "Everyone wants to be the beast until it's time to do what beasts do". 

Help me bring some relief and hope to these kids. Donate what you can, or just send me a message of support, which is enough for me to know you care - or both.
I'm fighting for them, for me as a self imposed test - and for you and what you value.
