For Henry

December 11, 2022 | Bridget Conlin

At EverybodyFights, we’re passionate about supporting our members, friends, and our community. We believe in paying it forward and “fighting” together to raise money and awareness for impactful organizations/causes. We are more than just a gym, we are a community that supports everyone around us.

We recently hosted a fundraiser event for a sweet little boy named Henry. Henry has AHC, a one-in-a-million, severe, life-threatening, neurological disease. When Henry was diagnosed, his parents were told there were no treatments for AHC so they made it their mission to find one. Henry’s family started a non-profit called “For Henry” last year to fund the development of gene therapy. The cost of developing this treatment is $3M. This treatment could be developed in a year and the family is in a race against time to save him before he suffers irreversible brain damage as a result of his disease. 

 

This past Sunday a group of 50 fighters came together to show our support for Henry. We participated in a group workout in honor of Henry, and then got together at a local restaurant, Lincoln, to connect and help raise more funds and awareness. Thank you to the following sponsors for donating items to the raffle:

  • Capo Restaurant
  • Covet 
  • Bohdii
  • Rally2Give
  • InsideTracker
  • Haymakers for Hope

 EverybodyFights raised over $3,000 for Henry and his family!”
