Twenty-five NSW Police officers, two civilians and a prominent businessman will showcase their skills in the boxing ring – all in the name of charity.
The fifth annual NSW Police Boxing Competition supporting NSW Police Legacy and PCYC NSW at the North Sydney Leagues Club, Cammeray, will feature 14 bouts, including the main event which will see NSW Police Commissioner’s Chief of Staff, Chief Superintendent Chris Craner, take on Yellow Brick Road Chairman and NSW Police Legacy Boxing Ambassador, Mark Bouris.
All fighters have undertaken a gruelling 12-week training program before putting their bodies on the line for two great causes.
Since the competition began in 2013, more than $320,000 has been raised for NSW Police Legacy and PCYC NSW.
Competition organiser, Chief Inspector Glenn McDougall said the 18 men and four women taking part are fighting for two charities that support the police family in times of need.
“NSW Police Legacy and PCYC NSW are in the hearts of every NSW Police officer. Families who have experienced the loss of someone they love will always have these charities standing up and fighting for them through tough times,” Ch Insp McDougall said.
“No family, partner or child of a deceased, former or serving NSW Police officer, should ever feel forgotten, alone or in need.
“This fight is also an opportunity for members of the community to get behind these charities and show their support by donating,” Ch Insp McDougall said.
Doors open at 6pm today (Wednesday 29 November 2017) at North Sydney Leagues Club (12 Abbott Street, Cammeray).
