Leading up to Fight Night we will be featuring one of the incredible men and women who have joined the Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Meet our #FeaturedFighter, Jason McGuire, sponsored by Century 21
Our second bout of the night will feature Jason McGuire vs. Andreas Wulff. Jason is the owner of Real Property Management Service, a husband and most recently a father to newborn Aimée. Jason along with his extended family have attended the Fight to End Cancer gala every year and this year he knew he wanted to step up.
? Jason has set himself an epic fundraising goal of $20, 000! With just about 6 weeks left of both training and fundraising he is looking for support in getting those dollars for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Donate towards Jason’s goal HERE!
“Both Jennifer (my wife) and myself, have family that has cancer and have to live with it every day. While this is not something that people want or like to talk about it, open discussion is needed.”
“This year we are proud to [welcome] our first child into this world. I want to make sure that cancer is not something she will ever have to worry about in her life. We have the ability to solve many problems in today’s world and cancer is one that effects so many people. This is why I want to fight, this is why I want to put an end to cancer!”
This year interest in FTEC broke records with countless of interested everyday heroes looking to join the fight. “Hundreds of worthy people applied. I truly believe my name was drawn from a hat,” said Jason of his initial involvement with the Fight to End Cancer.
“…I’m in the best shape of my life (a small pear shape)! Going to the gym 4+ days a week is intense. The late nights and long hours are really hard to adjust to. A typical night at the gym is 2-3 hours of different activities meant to tire out each muscle group… I’m hopeful it will all come together for me in the end and I will inspire future fighters as I was inspired.”
Now the only question is, who’s got the better arm in the family, Aimée or dad?
