Former Ring 10 Board Member, Richard Thornblad, passed away on April 14, 2014 at age 62 at the Albert Einstein Hospital in the Bronx, New York. He was hospitalized for an intestinal blockage about a week ago but the cause of death was an infection which shot through his system and couldn’t be contained by antibiotics. Richard is survived by his wife, Joanie, and two daughters.Just before his death, Richard was visited by his closest friends, all of whom were members of Ring 10, Mike Bernard, John Zervos, John Marano, Vinnie Serratore and Mike Trapani. We all loved Richard, a gregarious fun-loving person, who loved boxing and the people in it, for his entire life. He will especially be missed by those who knew him for the dinners he always would arrange for his Ring 10 friends. Good Bye, Richard. We will miss you and always love you. Rest in Peace. You will never be forgotten.

—————————————————————————————————— Ring 10′s First Annual Run With The Champs Walk/Jog-A-Thon
Sunday, June 1, 2014
This will be an event you don’t want to miss!
On Sunday, June 1, 2014, we will be taking up the challenge of running with the Champs. You will have an opportunity to meet, take pictures, and spend the day with your favorite fighters. Some that will be in attendance are Iran Barkley, Mark Breland, Aaron Davis, Doug DeWitt, Tyrone Jackson & Junior Jones, just to name a few. It will be a fun and fit activity for the whole family. This event will raise funds for Ring 10 to help fighters and their families. We are hoping to make this walk/jog-a-thon a profitable fundraiser for our worthy cause, so the more contributions we raise, the more successful we will be at achieving our goal.
Sponsors are still needed and there are plenty of spots available. Being a sponsor will give you or your business excellent visibility on all social media platforms, as well as at the event.
This is sure to be a great event! Ring 10 thanks you in advance for your support! For more information, go to “Upcoming Events” on this page and click on the link.
