"KO" Cancer

Description: Kansas City’s Golden Glove Charity and Title Boxing Club (West Wichita) are hosting Wichita’s first ever Boxathon and we are looking for businesses and individuals to participate. Our objective is to keep the house full all night and work towards knocking out pediatric cancer. We have 43 team captain spots to fill. Each captain will have the responsibility of recruiting a team of at least 12 people and scheduling them to box for one of the hours. Participants can box for a full hour or split an hour with a teammate, as long as the bag is staying busy the whole time. Captains are asked to raise a minimum of $540 for their teams bag in an effort to reach our goal of $20,000! Each hour consists of 3 minute boxing rounds with 1 minute rests in between, for a total of 15 rounds per hour and 180 rounds Total! If you are interested but not familiar with Title Boxing Club (West Wichita), give us a call for additional information on the event. Captains must sign up by going to and selecting the “Team captain” item in the GGC Store. After you sign up you will have a spot to receive donations for your team. Remember, the team captain is responsible for scheduling their team to cover 12 hours on the bag with no gaps. If you had 12 people on your team each would have to box 15 rounds straight so we suggest splitting hours for people that have never done this before. We are expecting high profile guests and companies to participate! There will be news and media coverage for this event. Most importantly, we have the potential to raise more than $20,000 if we sell all the bags and keep the punching all night. Please consider starting or joining a team and helping us KNOCK OUT pediatric cancer. ***This is a fun family friendly event, NO boxing experience necessary! If you cannot participate please take a second to go to and donate $1 in the GGC Store. If you would like to donate more simply change the quantity of your “order”.
