September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and our focus is on Garth Taylor, the winner the SA Amateur Kickboxing in Lightweight Category in 2014, singer and co-owner and kickboxing coach at a gym in JHB East. This month he’ll be returning to the ring in an effort to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
On the 15th of September Garth will be taking part in the White Collar Boxing 19 event because this is a cause close to his heart. “I lost my sister to cancer. Having watched what she went through as an adult fighting this disease, I can only image how much worse it is for children to be fighting this battle. I figured, how bad could it be, me stepping into the ring and getting punched around for kids who are fighting for their lives every single day.
Pledges and donations will be administered via the online fundraising platform, Backabuddy. CLICK HERE to contribute towards this initiative. A R20 donation can also be made by smsing the word STRONGER to 40770.
White Collar Boxing 19 will take place at Scarlet Ribbon Exclusive Function Venue, Stoneridge Centre, Modderfontein. The evening promises to be an adrenalin-packed showcase of boxing talent with eight fights taking place through the night. Tickets cost R100 and can be purchased at the door or through Stephen on 082 496 9308. To follow the action and to keep up to date, visit; Garth Taylor and Little Fighters Cancer Trust online.
