COURAGE BOXING is a one off white-collar boxing event held to help raise funds for the Albert Kennedy Trust while also raising awareness of National Coming Out Day.
Pride Boxing has run 3 very successful annual events in association with Pride in London. They have in fact been so successful with so many people wanting to get involved that this year are also bringing you Courage, an LGBT+ White Collar boxing event.
Courage Coincides with National Coming Out Day, Which is on Friday 11th October, the day after our fight night. National Coming Out Day is an opportunity to celebrate and support all of the different and in lots of cases extremely difficult ways in which LGBT+ people come out to friends, family and the world. The funds that we raise will go towards helping AKT with the extremely important work they do helping and supporting young people in the community.
The feedback from this years Pride boxing has been overwhelming. Courage boxing aims to maintain the safe and comfortable space for all members of the LGBT+ community to take part in the challenging and enjoyable sport of Boxing.
