Boxing to beat ovarian cancer

Julie Gill is organising a charity fundraising event in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action on Sunday 13 December 4.15pm till 7.15pm. The event will be held at Beeston Parish Church Hall just opposite the Beeston Coop.

Box Cancer Logo“All our fundraising team will be performing a three hour non-stop boxathon workout” said Julie. “We are looking for volunteers to join us to raise some vital funds. So please, if you could perform a three hour work out for charity please do get in touch.”

Julie is also looking for people in the community and local businesses to donate raffle prizes, buy raffle tickets and to sponsor the boxers. You could also help by baking a cake or buns to sell at the event. &ou are invited to pop along to the event on Sunday the 13th December between 5-7pm, to show your support.

“The reason why we are running this event is because in the UK a woman dies every two hours in from ovarian cancer and sadly many of these deaths could be prevented if the condition were identified earlier. These women are our mothers, sisters, wife’s, aunties, and friends. Over a third of women are diagnosed in A&E – when the condition is already in an advanced stage. Ovarian Cancer Action receives no government support and therefore relies entirely on donations and grants. Every penny contributed makes a huge difference to the work that the scientists undertake.”

If you would like to get involved please email or telephone Julie on (0113) 270 4947.

If you would like a taste of Boxercise before committing to the Boxerthon, Julie runs regular Boxercise classes on Sundays at Beeston Parish Centre at 4:15pm and beginners are welcome.
