“Our mission is to knockout cancer the only way we know how, by literally fighting for a cure”. Haymakers for Hope is a great non-profit organization, dedicated to raising money for cancer research since 2009. Co-founders Julie Anne Kelly and Andrew Myerson were training for their own boxing competition in New York City when they came up with the idea to turn fighting in the ring into fighting for a cause!
Local men and women with no boxing experience spend 4 intense months training for the Rock N’ Rumble competition, and pair off against each other at this annual event at the House of Blues Boston. All proceeds go to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, to help in their mission to fight against cancer and eventually find a cure. This year’s competitive boxing match was beautifully designed by Amy Kimball Events, and was action-packed as always!
Check out www.haymakersforhope.org for more information, and thank you to everyone who came together to make this event so successful. We were honored to be a part of such a worthwhile cause. As Julie and Andrew say, “Not every fight ends at the bell”!Haymakers for Hope Rock N’ Rumble 2013, event planner Amy Kimball Events — House of Blues Boston.
