A little bit of context
I am the proud grandmother of 15yr old Halen Jacobs. I am raising money to help get Halen to the USA in July 2018 for the 18th Ringside World Championships. Halen is from a small boxing club in QLD, "SPIDERS", who is taking 5 of their best fighters to the USA. As you can imagine, this is a huge challenge to raise enough funds to get them all over to USA. They will spend a week sparring before the fight, therefore will need funds for the flight over/return and a weeks accomodation.
Because of his reputation, age and weight, Halen has difficulty finding match-ups locally and within Australia, which will eventually hinder his growth in the ring if he cannot continue to fight at his level.
Halen's lastest achievement, 3rd March 2018, is State Champion for his division which was a walk over (No-one to fight against). He then stepped up a 2kg catergory heavier than his weight division and won that State Title with a 5-0 win. His first fight since August 2017.
Halen is flying to Perth later this month to fight for his 3rd consectuative fight for the "Australian Champion Title." He is the fittest and fastest he has ever been. We wish him the best.
He is also the proud owner of these Titles;
2 x Australian Title
7 x Queeensland State Title
2 x South East Queensland Title
2 x Golden Gloves
3 x Novice Champion
Halen is sponsored by Maddison Sport. Maddison sponsor clothes, gloves and boots, however, unfortunately no dollars.
Halen has his sights set on the Olympics and this trip will be a life changing experience for him, one that will surely enpower him to continue to put every effort into achieving his dream.
I believe Halen deserves this chance to show the world what he is made of and to hone his skills against others with similar capabilities.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for any donation you can contribute to this worthy cause.
