RISKY BUSI­NESS, BUT YOU’VE GOT TO GLOVE CHAR­ITY

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - VIC­TO­RIA NU­GENT

MEM­BERS of Townsville’s busi­ness com­mu­nity will face off in the box­ing ring to raise money for char­ity.

Real es­tate agents, fi­nan­cial ad­vis­ers, po­lice, paramedics and fire­fight­ers are among those step­ping up to take part in a char­ity fight night.

Each par­tic­i­pant chooses their own char­ity with picks in­clud­ing White Rib­bon and the up­grade of the Townsville Hos­pi­tal chil­dren’s ward.

Fi­nan­cial ad­viser Michael Hogue and real es­tate agent Josh Thorn­ton are among those putting on the gloves.

“Ev­ery­one wants to see a real es­tate agent fight a fi­nan­cial ad­viser be­cause some­one’s got to lose,” Mr Hogue said.

Townsville City Coun­cil em­ployee Lani Vin­cent said she was en­joy­ing the chal­lenge.

“We can all train to­gether but when you step into the ring you’re by your­self,” she said.

Or­gan­iser Brett John­ston, from Body Torque gym, said he was hop­ing the sec­ond an­nual event would bet­ter last year’s ef­fort, which raised about $ 75,000 for the char­i­ties. The Fight For Your Cause fight night will be held Septem­ber 18 at Townsville RSL Sta­dium. For more in­for­ma­tion vist fight­fory­our­cause. net
