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