Jabz Boxing Raises More Than $5,000 for CURE to Conquer Childhood Cancer
Boxing-Inspired HIIT Workout Studios Raise Awareness and Give Back to Nonprofit with Successful Nationwide Fundraising Campaign
April 16, 2021 // Franchising.com // PHOENIX - Jabz Boxing (Jabz) studios and their members across the nation spent the month of March working out to both financially support CURE Childhood Cancer (CURE) and reinforce the organization’s mission to defeat fatal diseases.
Throughout the entire month of March, studios hosted a series of donation-based classes in which 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to CURE. In total, Jabz raised $5,230 and proudly shared the organization’s mission with Jabz members and fans through social media, press and in-studio messaging.
Phoenix-area multi-unit Jabz franchise owner Christina Peregrym inspired the systemwide initiative. She holds a personal tie to CURE Childhood Cancer and its mission. Peregrym lost her two-year-old godson Easton in February 2020 after he fought an incredibly brave battle with leukemia.
“The amount of support from our owners, staff and Jabz members for the CURE campaign has been remarkable, but I can’t say that I am surprised. We have an incredibly supportive group of franchise owners - both in their local communities and within our franchise system,” said Danielle Scott, Jabz Boxing Brand President. “It’s an honor to play a part in sparking nationwide fundraising and a discussion around beating childhood cancer. CURE is doing great work in its research and support of families who are navigating these extremely challenging times. We’re proud of the Jabz community for coming together to make a difference.”
CURE was founded in 1975 by Emory University pediatric oncologist, Dr. Abdel Ragab. He arrived in Atlanta as the city’s only pediatric oncologist, confronting a skeleton staff, no research budget and the lack of a basic microscope to help diagnose various types of pediatric leukemia. After approaching members in the community hoping to get their support, they were able to raise the money needed to buy Ragab a microscope and in turn, launch what is now known as CURE Childhood Cancer. In the past 10 years, the nonprofit has invested more than $32 million into innovative research. While research remains a focus, the nonprofit has evolved into much more. CURE’s programs also help address the physical, emotional, financial and educational needs of families during treatment.
