IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, CANCER HITS ALL OF US. THIS SEPTEMBER, HELP US HIT CANCER BACK. LITERALLY.
Join RISE Boxing, a fitness and boxing studio in Park City, Utah, as we host our inaugural Mountain Mettle Charity Boxing Event at The Corner Store at the base of Park City Mountain Resort on Saturday, September 28th, 2019, at 5:00 PM. In a united effort to fight cancer, Park City and Salt Lake City Locals will step into the ring, many of them for their first-ever amateur boxing match.
HOW IT WORKS
Local fighters will participate in an 8-week Fight Camp at RISE Boxing, where they will steep themselves in the sweet science that is boxing. Along the way, these fighters will take the fight to cancer by raising funds that go directly towards cancer awareness, research, and survivorship.
Each fighter will then be paired with another fighter of similar skill and experience. On September 28th, the fighters will step into the ring at our USA Boxing-sanctioned Mountain Mettle for their first ever match; win or lose, each of them will emerge a champion in the fight against cancer.
When: Saturday, September 28th, 2019
Where: The Corner Store at Park City Mountain Resort Base, 1325 Lowell Ave, Park City, UT

THE STORY BEHIND THE MOUNTAIN METTLE
In 2018, Maryguenn Vellinga and Luke Hinz opened RISE Boxing’s doors in the mountain community of Park City, Utah. Both Maryguenn and Luke are no strangers to cancer: Maryguenn’s father passed away due to esophageal cancer and Luke’s mother fought her way through breast cancer. And they have seen firsthand the invisible struggles it creates, even within the walls of RISE Studio. Seeing members of the RISE community battling cancer AND continuing to box has been an enormous inspiration, and ultimately led them to want to find a way to contribute to the fight against cancer. Thus, the Mountain Mettle was born.
The struggle against this disease is a daily fight, and unlike boxing, it’s not a fight that ends when you step out of the ring. So when you hear that bell at the Mountain Mettle, know that we will all keep on fighting.
