I am boxing on 28th February in order to raise money, and awareness, for The Lily Foundation.
I can't put it into better words than those of her parents below:
"The Lily Foundation was founded in October 2007, following Lily's death to Mitochondrial Disease earlier that year (Lily's story). When Lily was diagnosed, as her parents we tried to understand, However we were overwhelmed by an abundance of medical and scientific literature and still felt as if we knew nothing. We felt completely alone.
After her death, my brother-in-law and Lily's uncle Jonathan Pearce spoke about setting up The Lily Foundation. We haven't looked back.
To date we have exceeded fund raising targets and all expectations."
I am hoping to raise £500 before the event which is taking place at Supperclub in Notting Hill on February 28th.
If you can spare even a few pounds we would all be incredibly grateful. I'm going to get beaten up either way, however it would be nice to value the punches!
