Harry (Sachiya) Yonezawa, Asahi Coach who has been enthusiastically helping with the Asahi indoor clinics and summer training programs the past few years, has been battling cancer the past few months. Some of you may know him as the ambidextrous coach. As he is not able to work, he is needing financial assistance to help with his living and medical expenses. There is a boxing event fundraiser for Harry on February 11 at 5pm at Raincity Boxing in Richmond, BC. Net proceeds will go towards Harry’s expenses. It would be great to see you come out to support Harry.
NOTE: Correction on event time, it is 5pm (not 6pm that was shown before).
You can also help support the 2023 Asahi Japan Tour team while you get your favorite gift cards by buying them through our FundScrip affiliation link.
Thank you for your support.
