Hello everyone! My name is Izzy Akanbi and I am a 4th year Computer Science student as well as an entrepreneur always looking forward to any opportunity life gives me. While trying to balance studying, working a full time job, and running my own businesses - which involve managing and working with tens of companies, sports is something I do which helps maintain my physical and mental health. Since I was a young kid I have enjoyed sports, and was raised in a family which to this day does their best to give back to their community. With that said, I found out about the charity fights in support of the RMHC almost 3 years ago, and have been applying to become a part of this event which unites both of my favourite things to do, giving back and boxing. I am a hard worker, and when I have a goal I make sure it is achieved. I am going into the fight this year with the mentality of an eagle, I set my mind to win, and I will do just that. I am always amazed by how our community comes together to help those in need, and that is one of my motivations to win this fight. Let's all show everyone how generous our community really is. Every contribution is appreciated, I am asking you all to come together and help me on this journey of giving back. Let's do this!
The 2022 Fight for Charity will be held at the RBC Convention Centre on the 30th of April and will feature:
- 12 novice boxing matches
- Casino gaming
- Silent auction
We are proud to announce that the 2022 Fight for Charity event is in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Manitoba (RMHC).
Each and every day, the RMHC Manitoba Mission is delivered through their two core programs, Ronald McDonald House, at 556 Bannatyne Avenue, and Ronald McDonald Family Room, within the walls of HSC Children’s Hospital. Their mission is to help families stay together and feel supported as they maneuver through the challenging and confusing journey of childhood illness or injury. Every year, RMHC Manitoba supports over 2,000 families with overnight accommodations and day use programming. The services provided by RMHC Manitoba support the emotional and physical well-being of the family unit as well as help to ease the financial burden that accompanies childhood illness or injury. This integral support will save families over 1.35 million dollars annually in costly, out-of-pocket expenses.
By delivering important services such as accommodation, meals, parking, laundry, transportation, and programming, RMHC Manitoba is providing families with daily essentials allowing parents to focus on their sick child, their family, and themselves. Keeping families together during times of emotional turmoil allows them to stay strong and fills them with a deep appreciation for all those who are part of the RMHC Manitoba Mission.
RMHC Manitoba is truly proud to be an integral part of the network of care for sick children and their families and is grateful to their community of compassionate supporters.
What one accomplishes alone can be good, but what many accomplish together makes a difference.
Our fundraising goal for the 2022 event is $50,000. Please help us get there by donating anything you can to this worthy cause and sharing this page. Every dollar counts!!
