Team-Viva! Challenges - Everybody's Getting Active for Viva!

BOXING CLEVER

May 2016 - Kelly Mason is tackling one of the toughest, bravest challenges we've seen: a Charity Boxing event!

Fighting fit, but with no previous boxing experience, she'll be participating in this year's CRN Fight Night, an annual London event where  keen amateurs can test themselves to the limit while helping the charity of their choice. We're delighted that she's chosen Viva!, and she's hoping to raise £1000 to help us fight for animals!

Just the assessment and selection process sounds rigorous enough - 200 applicants from all walks of life have been whittled down to 18 over several weeks of constant professional evaluation  - but now she'll finally be stepping through the ropes to put all that training and hard-earned skill into practice.

Kelly says: "I have been vegan for almost two years and am a Yoga teacher. I have taken part in the CRN fight night so I can discipline myself during my time back with the IT company I work for as well as waiting to contribute efforts from myself to a charity that I believe in, that I stand by and that run in line with what I wish to stand for as a Human - When looking for a charity that reflected a cause / movement close to my heart, my morals, ethics and lifestyle I could not have chosen any other." It's great to have you in our corner, Kelly!

Please support Kelly by donating through her Just Giving page : https://www.justgiving.com/Kelly-Mason9
