A little history below about Knockout Wishes which is Rondeau's Kickboxing helping hand to the community helping to make the
community and the state a better place!
All funds are raised through the amazing members
& community through RKB events.
We are grateful and thannkful for everyone that participates!
We are so happy to say that through the hard work of our Fight Like a Girl 5k's, Paint Night, Kick-a-thons and other events we hold through out the year we have granted 3 wishes to wonderful deserving women and 1 wish to a Dad. We just renamed our cause to "KNOCKOUT Wishes" combining our men and women fund raising evenly into all our events. We are very excited to grow this cause and we are submitting the paperwork for this to be a non profit. We hope you can help our cause grow because it's so nice to see these wishes come true and really see the good that your support has done for these people.
Here is a little breakdown of our wishes we have handed out but please watch the videos and click through the photo gallery to see the faces of the lives we have touched.
Our first wish was to Ronda who asked for an elliptical to work out on at home. We were able to get her a nice elliptical.
Our second wish was to Jessyca who asked for a nice weekend away with her husband so they could have some quality time while she fought brain cancer. We sent Jessyca and her husband to the Berkshires for a weekend and they had a great time. Sadly Jessyca passed away May 2014.
Our third wish was to Nikki who has been undergoing numerous out of state doctor visits and treatments. She wanted to have something fun to look forward to and always wanted to swim wtih a dolphin. We granted her a Beluga Whale experience at Mystic Aquarium where we bought her admission for 2, a gas card and a gift certificate to Mystic Pizza for lunch or dinner.
Our fourth woman Elena sadly passed away before we could grant her wish to her but she asked that any funds raised for her be given to the next woman.
Our fifth wish granted was a Dad had throat and neck cancer, Leo, and was hit by alot of unexpected medical expenses. His wish was to have some help with these bills and we were able to make his wish come true. Leo "Fights like a Dad."
Our sixth woman Tammy we granted her wish to send her to NYC with her family for a weekend! She will be enjoying the sights of the city this December 2014.
Our seventh woman, Yvette is 38 with 4 children and 5 grandchildren and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at age 14 and had been battling complications due to the disease. In 2013 Yvette had both legs amputated and recently was moved to home and hospice because of an infection that is traveling to organs. Unfortunately the amputation did not stop the infection and she is now in hospice and her last wish is to have a ladies night out on a cruise with her mother, a few aunts and a couple of cousins she grew up with like sisters. Please help us make her wish come true. Sadly Yvette passed away before her wish could be granted. We will make a contribution to the family to help them with her burial.
