We are excited to have been announced as the charity of choice for an adrenaline-filled fundraiser happening next month.
The ‘100 Fights 100 Minutes’ Charity Benefit being held by the Leederville-based Combat Arts Institute of Australia involves competitors testing their endurance in a friendly 100 rounds of sparring against other participants.
The event will feature kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the Institute is hoping to reach its $6,000 target through sponsorship of the fighters (ie. a donation per round they complete).
We’ve been chosen because the husband of our researchers, Caroline Rudnicka, who has type 1 diabetes, trains at the Institute and is participating in the event. Caroline delivered a presentation at our World Diabetes Day event last year and has inspired many people to give to our research.
To register for this friendly martial arts marathon, head tohttp://combatartsinstitute.com.au/100fights2018
It’s a great spectator event too and there’ll be food trucks on site, so join in if you can!
