A Little About H4H

We're an official 501(c)(3) charity organization that gives you the opportunity to fight back against cancer. We’ll help you train for — and compete in — a sanctioned charity boxing event to raise funds for cancer research, care, awareness and survivorship. To prepare for each event, we combine the efforts of local boxing gyms and volunteers, and match you up with someone of a similar experience level (even if that experience level is “none”). At the end of your journey, you’ll compete in front of thousands of supporters, and win or lose you’ll step into and out of the ring a champion.

In 2009, founders Andrew Myerson and Julie Anne Kelly participated in the New York City Golden Gloves. They decided that competing against the city’s best boxers wasn’t enough, and decided to raise money for cancer research. This planted the seeds for Haymakers for Hope. Today, H4H gives everyday people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in their first sanctioned boxing event. The experience is impactful, challenging, and life-changing, and the march towards a cure will continue long after the last match of the night. Not every fight ends at the bell.
