Mungo Sports love to make an impact in communities by give back programmes and appreciate those who do the same. We have sponsored recent graduate Nyomi Smith for her upcoming charity-boxing event on the 26th March where all proceedings will be going to a fantastic cause.
Check out the questions we asked down below.
Tell us about the event and the charity?
I’ve took the challenge in joining the pink collar organisation where I train to box for 8 weeks then after the 8 weeks test out my new skills in a charity boxing fight. This is a platform for mostly ladies to get into boxing and to enjoy taking part in a journey that will fill you with confidence, introduce you to new friends, lose weight and get fit and complete the experience by having your friends and family chanting your name as you show off your new found boxing skills.
On the fight day (26 march) I will be matched with a person of similar ability for 3 rounds and each round will be three minuets long.
My charity is in aid of the pediatric ward at the Royal Orthopedic Hospital. The hospital is a pioneer for its amazing surgical techniques and advanced treatment for people with bone and joint disorders. My donation will go towards ward 11 the only children department within the hospital.
Why have you chosen this specific charity and to take part in this event.
I chose to donate to this hospital and ward because the team there works hard to care for their patients; they save many lives and prevent others from further illnesses. They have an amazing set of doctors and nurses that specialise in surgical techniques and joint disorder. My sister works there as a nurse and ever since I have got to know the hospital and the staff that work there I just fell in love with everything they do.
I found out about this event through a friend who fought last year. I really enjoyed watching it as the atmosphere was good and the boxers are in the same boat, their all beginners. I found it to look fun and I’ve always wanted to dabble into boxing as it a disciplined sport plus it helps great with fitness.
Are there any personal ambitions you want to achieve from this?
Learning how to box and fitness would be my main ambition. Learning all the different techniques, getting the chance to actually spar in a ring with other people and pushing my body to limits it hasn’t done for a long time. And just to have fun with something different out of my everyday life. Guess it’s nice to step out from the norm, and leave everyday life for an hour or so.
We wish Nyomi every success in her boxing event and would appreciate if you could get behind and support her. Thank you. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nyomi-smith
