WHAT IS PITCH2PUNCH?
Pitch2Punch is a 12 week corporate boxing challenge, culminating in a gala event in support of beyondblue. From 16th April, 20 male and female suits, planners, creatives, buyers and producers will hone their minds and bodies to step into the ring on the 17th July and face an industry peer. One of them could be you. Its 12 weeks of intensive training to shed the Easter exuberance and achieve the unimaginable; if you thought pitching was full of intense excitement, try this.
Promoter, Gareth Eden-Styche from Shambles Communications says “the feeling you get as you walk into the ring with your entrance music playing and the crowd cheering is truly unique. As the audience lights dim, it’s just you and your new skills. The sense of personal achievement will live with you long after the final bell and it won’t go unnoticed from the hundreds of industry colleagues and peers who have come to cheer you on.
Boxing is an art. So who better to perfect those skills than you? Jonathan Dooner, Australian Masters Super Heavyweight Boxing Silver Medallist will get you to your peak of physical and mental performance and he will get you there with a smile. And when it’s all over, you will have some excellent photos to show your mum.”
All fitness levels and experiences are catered for, so whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you could take part. Just put down that brief, flick off that computer screen and start something truly award winning.
FIGHT ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION IN SUPPORT OF BEYONDBLUE

and effective treatment options and promoting their needs and experiences with policy makers and healthcare service providers
