Fighting Back! – Part 2
The Big Fight UK have come together with London Fights & Cobra Gym to organise ‘FIGHTING BACK!’ a white-collar boxing fundraiser for The Grace Dear Trust: a mental health charity. We are in the corner of the 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing mental health issues each Year.
The charity was set up February 2017 by the family of Grace in who lost their daughter to suicide aged just 27. Grace had been suffering with depression and anxiety from the age of 13, but hadn’t felt she could reach out to anyone to help her make sense of her feelings.
The Grace dear trust aims to raise awareness, encourage more people to speak openly and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
