THROWING A PUNCH WITH A CAUSE

Posted on

Mojo Boxing & Fitness is proud to present the Fight to Feed boxing event on the 30 November 2016 in aid of Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA).

Boxing is not only a popular combat sport, but is one of the fastest growing fitness sport trends in South Africa. In an effort to raise funds for PSFA – an organisation which works to combat the prevalence of hunger in children attending schools – Mojo Boxing & Fitness will host a boxing event that is not only fun, but that also pushes mental and physical boundaries.

Mojo Boxing & Fitness is inviting boxing fanatics and wannabe boxers to step into the ring in aid of PSFA, with the goal to feed an entire class of 35 children breakfast and lunch daily for a year through this one event.

Owner of Mojo Boxing & Fitness, Joseph Chinana, says this is a cause close to his heart. “It is difficult to imagine heading off to school for a full day without having a single nutritious meal that day. That is the plight of so many children in South Africa,” says Joseph.

Charles Grey of PSFA says, “At PSFA we provide a nutritious daily meal to over 28 000 children at 155 schools, and have done so since 1958, serving over 1.5 billion meals to hungry school children. Now we’re stepping into the boxing ring with Mojo Boxing & Fitness to increase the number of children we can feed each year. So why not come in and join our fight.”

In the build up to the event, Joseph along with Sergio Lumanda, Mojo Boxing & Fitness’ resident competing boxer and trainer, will be hosting specialised classes for the participating boxers.

Joseph explains that the training during these classes is very different to the boxing training typically offered to the “everyday athletes” seeking to get in better shape at the Mojo Boxing & Fitness. “Training an individual to compete in a boxing ring requires teaching them how to land and take punches with human opponents. These athletes have to learn to hit and be hit by a competitor.

“Not all the boxers participating are competing boxers, but those with a passion for the popular combat sport. With these classes we want to make sure they are prepared for the event. It is all about energy and we believe our boxers have plenty to go around,” says Joseph.
