Reason for Participating

I’ve lost family members and friends to cancer... and I have also seen familiy members and friends win the battle to cancer. While I was there to support them through this difficult and painfull desease, I wanted to do something for those who don’t have the means or resources. Raising money through this event was a good option to create awareness and motivate others to donate and suport kids with cancer.

TOUGHEST PART OF TRAINING

The hardest part was to stop making excuses to avoind training, so I had to accomodate work, school, my own business, and training in order to get as ready possible to at least resist the three rounds.

MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING
