Box for char­ity in aid of In­spire

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

For the sec­ond time, Fort Fit­ness is host­ing a phys­i­cal chal­lenge in aid of the In­spire Foun­da­tion.

Com­pa­nies are be­ing in­vited to send one of their em­ploy­ees to rep­re­sent them in a Box­ing Chal­lenge, which will be held on Sat­ur­day, 28 Oc­to­ber. They will be com­pet­ing against rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other com­pa­nies. Box­ing matches will be of three rounds of 2 min­utes each, with a minute rest in be­tween.

In the run-up to the event, par­tic­i­pants will be trained by pro­fes­sional boxer Chris­tian Co­qqos, who will pro­vide free classes three times a week. Fort Fit­ness will sup­ply all nec­es­sary pro­tec­tive gear, in­clud­ing head guards, mouth guards and 16 ounce gloves.

Com­pa­nies or in­di­vid­u­als can choose to chal­lenge ei­ther an­other com­pany or an­other in­di­vid­ual, or else be part­nered at ran­dom with an­other par­tic­i­pant. The gen­eral public is in­vited to at­tend and sup­port the par­tic­i­pants.

Ear­lier this year, Fort Fit­ness hosted an­other phys­i­cal chal­lenge for com­pa­nies in aid of In­spire, an event which was highly suc­cess­ful.

All pro­ceeds from the event will go to­wards the fund­ing of ser­vices of­fered by the In­spire Foun­da­tion. The NGO of­fers ther­a­peu­tic, ed­u­ca­tional and leisure ser­vices to peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity, help­ing them to reach their full po­ten­tial. Ser­vices are of­fered at a highly sub­sidised rate or free of charge, and there­fore the NGO de­pends on do­na­tions to main­tain such pro­grammes.

Box for char­ity is a great op­por­tu­nity to net­work, get fit and help char­ity!
