Ring 10

Helping Retired Boxers Through The Toughest Fight of Their Lives

Between Rounds

Ring 10 Minutes from the February, 2017 Meeting.     February 15, 2017
February 2017 Meeting: The general membership met at Patricia’s of Tremont Restaurant on Wednesday night, February 15, 2017.  We received a beautiful batch of Ring 10 (logo on the arm) nylon Polo Shirts.  They sell for $35 if anyone is still interested.  All shirts are Large, X-Large, and a couple of 2XL.  Black, Light and Dark Blue, and Gray. You need to add $5 for shipping which covers all costs even if it is multiple items (total $5)
The meeting opened with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the customary 10 count in memory of those the boxing community has lost. According to the records, it is a rare but a very happy time to say that Ring 10 is not aware of losing any warriors this past month. Unfortunately, no “R.I.P.’s” months do not happen that often so let’s hope this is a trend.
A close friend of ex professional boxer, Laurie Ann Holt, got in contact with Ring 10 to ask for help in her quest to get a van with a chair lift. She is suffering from cancer, and was given a short term life expectancy.  All of the members signed a nice “Ring 10 event” picture to be sent to her wishing her to “keep fighting and don’t give up.”  Some suggestions were made to help her with transportation.
“Run with the Champs” date had to be changed. The new date will be SUNDAY, APRIL 23, from 12:00-3:00 pm.  Rain or Shine
Tickets are $10 to enter and Run/Jog with the Champs. This is NOT a Race. Please bring all your friends.  We will need a lot of help carrying our champs across the finish line. Iran Barkley, Dennis Milton, Richard Burton, Dennis Milton, Matt Farrago, Larry Barnes, and hopefully a few more.  Every member that attended the Feb. meeting took 10 tickets to sell.  Please send an email to ring10ny@yahoo.com to order tickets or Mail a check to Ring 10, 30 Bowdon Rd, Greenlawn, NY 11740.
Items that will be for sale will be boxing memorabilia, food, drink and raffle tickets.  Do you want to win a ball and book signed by NY Yankee Jim Abbott? You have to come to the event and buy a Raffle Ticket.
Additional donations of food, paper products and snacks are greatly appreciated.
A FULL disclosure of Ring 10 expenses was read off to the members present at the meeting.  Members were impressed by all the fighters that we have touched and continue to be a part of. This is always an ongoing monthly event until that fighter gets back on his feet or until the Boxing World takes care of their own.
