Further information about NSW Police Boxing Competition:
The Police Legacy Boxing Competition began in 2013. Since its inception more than $320,000 has been raised for NSW Police Legacy and PCYC NSW.
NSW Police Legacy, established in 1987, is a not-for-profit organisation committed to supporting both past and present police and their families during times of tragedy and need. Today, NSW Police Legacy supports more than 1000 police legatees, of which 226 are young people (0-25-years-old).
PCYC NSW, established in 1937 by Police Commissioner William John Mackay, is a youth organisation working with police and community to empower young people. It operates from 63 locations in regional and metropolitan NSW providing a range of sport, recreation, artistic, cultural, educational, leadership and crime prevention programs.
The Police Legacy Boxing Competition also showcases the hard work of officers who have trained for several months before jumping in the ring.
The history of NSW Police Boxing Competition:
The NSW Police Boxing Competition was started by a group of police officers in 2013. The group, including Cootamundra Local Area Commander Superintendent Chris Schilt, former Assistant Commissioner Alan Clarke, Major Events and Incident Group Inspector Glenn McDougall and Harbourside Crime Coordinator Adam Janco, have been the driving force behind the establishment of the competition.
Since then, there have been 113 NSW police officers jump in the ring with celebrities including Mark Bouris, Danny Green and James Dack, for this special police family fundraising event.
Each year, a number of corporate heavyweights assist in raising awareness and money for NSW Police Legacy and PCYC
The lead up to the boxing competition includes 12 weeks of training, facilitated at the Sydney Police Centre, before the fighters jump into the ring to raise money for two important causes that support the NSW Police family.
Who is involved in the event, aside from police officers?
In addition to serving police officers from across NSW, a number of police family members and supporters, as well as other distinguished guests will be involved:
Yellow Brick Road Chairman and NSW Police Boxing Ambassador, Mark Bouris, Triple M Grill Team presenter, Gus Worland, and media personality, Jon Harker.
