In just under eight weeks our JJ’s Heroes will be ready and raring to take on the ultimate challenge in the ring at our Corporate White Collar Boxing Event at Plymouth Pavilions on Saturday 25th April.
The 24 business men and women were split into two teams, The Red Team & The Blue Team, prior to their intensive 15 week training programme and have now entered their seventh week of training. Click here to check out their progress.
As our contenders are now almost half way through their rigorous training programme, we thought it would be a good idea to feature some of them over the next few weeks to find out how they are getting on…
This week’s featured contender is Ken York. The Director of Security Management South West said “We are celebrating 10 years in business this year and we wanted to celebrate by doing something unique. Signing up for JJ’s Heroes is a way of doing something different, whilst giving something back to the community”.
Personally, learning to box has been extremely challenging and cramming the training into fifteen weeks has tested my mental and physical strengths and abilities to its limits, but I am determined to succeed. I will come out of this knowing I have done it, made some wonderful new friends and raised money for a very good cause!
Just like our other contenders, Ken has set up a Just Giving page in the hope to raise £1,000! If you wish to support them please visit www.justgiving.com for more details.
