2nd Annual "Fight For Hope" Featured

 Boxing Glove Heart"2nd ANNUAL "FIGHT FOR HOPE" Boxing Glove Heart

 

Fight for Hope 2018

"FIGHT FOR HOPE" Is a fundraiser to support Kids With Cancer Society and Ronald McDonald House.

Why the "Fight For Hope"?  This name and fundraiser was chosen because the children that are being helped by these two charities of choice are each battling critical illnesses and they are in the fight for their lives.  Kids With Cancer Society (KWCS) and Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Alberta (RMHCNA) have been chosen to be the recipients of the funds raised by this event.  The Cartwright family has been strenghtened and united by the loving support of these two charities as have many other families.  Therefore, their way of giving back is by uniting with others in the "Fight For Hope".

Officer Kris Ferguson and the Father of Jordan whose son has been battling cancer have put their hearts and fists together to help families "Fight For Hope" and will be the main event fight in an Alberta Amateaur Boxing Sanctioned Fight Card with many more local fighters.  Those participating have worked hard to pledge and be ready for this event. 

Help "Fight For Hope" and join us April 28, 2018 @ 4pm - (Crosslink County Sportsplex - Clairmont, AB).  Please see details below.  We look forward to seeing you there.

ABOUT THE CARTWRIGHT FAMILY

Cartwright Family

The Cartwright family has experienced first hand what's it's like to have your life change in an instant.  After a fire claimed their home in Westlock, the Cartwright family started building a new life in Debolt, Alberta. 

The biggest challenge of all came when Scotty and Robyn's son Jordan was not feeling like himself.  He was experiencing pain and in general was not feeling well.  The doctor's were stumped by Jordan's case.  In the course of visiting with different doctors in Grande Praire, Jordan began coughing up blood.  Thinking he had pneumonia, doctor's ordered more blood work.  The blood work revealed a diagnosis of Leukemia, a word no family ever wants to hear regarding their child.  Once Jordan's blood count has reached a healthy level, he will undergo chemotherapy treatment daily until 2020.

Jordan was medavaced to Edmonton and checked into the Stollery Children's Hospital.  The care he received was incredible.  The family found even more support through Kids With Cancer, which assisted in covering food, hotel, parking, and even had support groups for their whole family.  Even with all the support they received, the cost of living in a new city was adding up.  Once they moved into the Ronald McDonald House they found out how ready the Edmonton community was to support their family.

The Cartwright family has used their challenges in life as stepping stones to make a difference.  This is where their passion for "Fight For Hope" was born.
