Fight for the Cure 2017 – What a great experience. As the saying goes you need to get out of your comfort zone to grow. Well that is what we did and it was awesome. I am not saying it was easy. I am saying it was an experience that I will never forget and will continue to take pride in. On top of the great workouts and the great camaraderie you get to help out your community and those, that for the moment, cannot fight for themselves. I am a far cry from a fighter but Scott whipped me into shape and prepared me for the most intense 10 minutes of my life. If you are thinking about it and you have the ability to raise some funds for an awesome cause don’t hesitate. You owe it to yourself and your community to get a bit uncomfortable.

One of your most memorable life experiences!
Among a myriad of emotions and sensations, you will move through;
The toughest training you will ever put yourself through, mentally and physically
Anxiousness, nervousness, and elation
Feeling empowered, inspired, and proud
But most of all – you will feel the joy and satisfaction that you’ve made a difference…win or lose in the ring…the real fight is against cancer. You, and the 2018 team, will bring out the very best in humanity and witness their generous support of you, through your passion, to the cancer cause and you in turn, will have made incredible impact in the lives of local people living with cancer. You WILL make a difference!
You will join the ranks of “the few”, the people who have dared to reach outside of their comfort zone to help – from Accountants and TV personalities to Senators and Prime Minister’s, you will join an Elite group of individuals who share a common desire – to make a difference in your local Cancer community.
It’s an awesome feeling and a life changing experience

As a young man, I loved watching some of the all-time boxing greats glide around the ring. During that time, I would have never thought that I would have a chance to step into the ring, myself, especially on behalf of such a worthy cause as the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
Having the opportunity to participate in the 2017 Fight for the Cure has been a life changing experience for me. I was able to spend the better part of a year training with seven other men, driven to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
I lost my mother to cancer at a young age. If getting punched in the face can help one person avoid having to go through that experience, it was more than worth it.
