White Associates would like to sing the praises of one of our own – quantity surveyor Justin ‘Balboa’ Bearne who raised more than $3200 for Cure Kids after taking part in a corporate fight night recently.
After months of training, Justin emerged victorious from the bout held at the Langham Hotel – much to the delight of everyone from White Associates, especially those of us in attendance.
More important than the win though was Justin’s dedication to supporting Cure Kids and its vital child health research.
Ringside NZ takes mild mannered corporates, both guys and girls, and transforms them into professional fighters – all in the aid of a good cause. All of the fighters on the night were raising money for Cure Kids and together raised more than $56,000 – with Justin being one of the top contributors.
“I really wanted to make a difference. I’m inspired by the work of Cure Kids and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Fight Night 2017”
As part of the initiative, all of the fighters involved had Cure Kids Ambassadors, Justin met his recently – a young girl named Addison who was diagnosed with a heart defect in 2012. Addison has undergone multiple surgeries to combat a staph infection. Unfortunately the infection caused damage to her heart, which means she will likely need more surgery to correct her condition as she grows.
All of us at White Associates are incredibly proud of Justin for all of the hard work he put and for spreading the word about Cure Kids and the amazing work they do for kids like Addison.
Thanks for doing us proud, Justin!
