With the lack of actual live sporting events limiting the abilities of local groups to raise much needed funds, folks are getting creative.
For instance, Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame inductee Gord Apolloni and all those involved with the Top Glove Boxing Academy are staging weekly "Knockout On-Line 50/50" draws.
Anyone interested in purchasing tickets to participate and support the facility and the boxers is asked to visit "www.topglove.goplay5050.com."
Opened initially in 1990, the Top Glove Academy has served at times as a training centre for national caliber boxers. These days, however, their membership includes a mix of some local young pugilists, as well as folks who simply recognize the health and fitness value that comes with much of the training these athletes endure.
For further information on the club, kindly contact Gord Apolloni at (705) 561-7215.
