So far IT Heavy Hitters has raised over $437,000 for The Key to Life Charitable Trust and we are currently working with the team to pull this together again for 2021, with shows in Wellington on May 1st and Auckland on May 8th. The Key to Life Charitable Trust is a registered charitable trust aiming to affect positive social change surrounding suicide prevention, suicide awareness and mental health in New Zealand. It's a great cause and we look forward to making a difference to those affected by these issues.
We'll take a group of IT professionals, provide qualified training and instruction and glove them up. The result is an evening of explosive boxing action. You don't need any experience to fight at IT Heavy Hitters, you'll be trained by professional coaches and helped with all aspects of theory and practical boxing. On the night you'll choose your walkout song, step into the arena and put all of your training into 3x2 minute rounds, scored and refereed by qualified officials.
The fight night main event in Wellington will be the Doug McLay Memorial Fight, Doug was an inspiration to many boxers and is sorely missed throughout the sporting communities he was involved in.
The Auckland main event will be the Eric Miller Memorial Fight. Eric was an instrumental member of our fight night team and is missed by us all.
