An Ellard Star: Christina boxes to raise money for children with cerebral palsy.

This is the Story of our very own Christina Lowe. Christina made the very brave decision to have her leg amputated just under a year ago. To be able to walk on her new prosthetic is a major achievement but to get in a ring and box is unbelievable. The whole crowd was behind her, especially the ones from Ellard.

"I participated in a White Collor Boxing event to raise money for children/young adults with cerebral palsy

This was something I always wanted to experience from a young age but due to my cerebral palsy and other complications, this wasn’t achievable at the time.

In December 2020 I had a procedure done and the aim for this was to have a better quality of life. As part of my rehabilitation, I decided I would take up the opportunity to do what I always wanted to do.

I trained for 16 weeks in total. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and this also had a really good impact physically and mentally.

On the 28th of November 2021 I stepped in that ring and fought, not only was the crowd out of this world (80%) Ellard but even strangers that I have never seen before were truly supporting my corner and it was extremely overwhelming. This was a proud moment for me considering I was the first amputee to ever do the White Collor Boxing Event and raised £750.00 for a great cause."

Everyone at Ellard is extremely proud of you Christina!"
