We are proud to announce a brand new partnership with strength and conditioning equipment manufacturer, BLK BOX.
Joining forces ahead of our UK City League this October, BLK BOX will be powering Battle Cancer through the rest of 2020 and into next year as we kickstart fundraising post-COVID.
Offering up a money-can’t-buy prize for the UK City League, one winning team of four will fly to Belfast for a behind the scenes glimpse of BLK BOX’s HQ in the iconic Titanic quarter. As well as the chance to train at BLK BOX's showroom gym and tour its HQ and workshop, they will also design, engineer and fabricate their own personalised piece of kit to take home.
Battle Cancer’s UK City League will take place on 12-24th October this year across five UK cities in place of its postponed Manchester and London events.
Our Founder and Director, Scott Britton said:
“With the power of BLK BOX behind us, we have the ability to fill a void of fundraising that has seen charities lose over £200 million in the UK alone during COVID. With over 15 mini-events across the UK, you can share, fundraise and join a group of people that have felt the impact of cancer.
Our mission to provide accessible fitness as a tool of recovery, prevention and community support is going from a dream to reality thanks to the vision, power and heart from all the team at BLK BOX.”
Catherine McLaughlin, Marketing Manager at BLK BOX commented:
“Many of our staff and friends of the company have been affected by cancer in some way or another, so we are honoured to be partnered with a company who make it their goal to use fitness to help improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
We have been inspired by Scott’s commitment to supporting others and the belief he has in his vision for his own movement. His passion and drive to do good is why we are proud to welcome Scott and Battle Cancer to team BLK BOX and we are really excited for the future of this new relationship.”
This is just the beginning of Battle Cancer and BLK BOX’s partnership; Battle Cancer’s Irish community will be the first to experience the new BLK BOX plates, kettlebells, dumbbells and more at our first event of 2021 due to be held in Dublin in March 2021!
