If you’ve ever fancied stepping into the ring and experiencing the life of a boxer, now is your perfect opportunity – as Challenge Charity Boxing returns to Leicester.

Challenge Charity Boxing invites men and women to be part of something special, to push themselves to the limits, get fit and most importantly make a huge difference to the children, young people and families who rely on Rainbows.

By signing up to take part in this fantastic event, you’ll be rewarded with eight weeks of FREE training – which is designed to get you fit and bout ready, while ensuring everyone who steps into the ring at Leicester Arena on Saturday 2 May enjoys a safe boxing match.

Along with receiving expert training and taking part in an exciting evening of white collar boxing, you’ll be making memories which will last a lifetime – while helping raise vital funds for Rainbows, the East Midlands’ only hospice for life-limited children and young people.
