The Mis-Fit family never cease to amaze me. As a boxercise instructor, we were invited to organise a Box to beat event. – a joint campaign with Boxercise and the Ovarian cancer.org – it would be a 3 hour long Boxercise class. It was an event created to raise awareness and much needed funds for research during March which is Ovarian Cancer month. I asked the Mis-Fits if anyone would like to take part and got lots of yes’s :-).
So we organised our event for Sunday 29th February. Mark at the North Durham Academy in Stanley, where we have some of our classes, very kindly allowed us the use of the theatre for the event. Thanks Mark!!!!.
3 hours is a long time to workout – ha the guys are usually moaning 5 minutes into a regular class (though they love it really heehee). So I knew I needed to make it a fun filled session.
I think I achieved it – the guys were laughing throughout it all and they all agreed they had had fun and the time just flew over . I’ve had some of the guys requesting to do it all again next year!.
We set ourselves a £500 target – as of today though we have actually raised over £900!!!!!!!!. our little community has come together and supported one another and raised an incredible amount of money for a brilliant cause.
A HUGE thank you to all those who took part and to all of Mis-Fits, and our family and friends who have donated so so generously!.
