London – 2nd November 2010
Esteemed boxing manager and trainer Johnny Eames is making an appeal for support, from the public and the boxing community, for a charity run at Central Park, Dagenham, this coming Sunday, the 7th November, in aid of five year old cancer sufferer Mitchell Huth.
Mitchell, who is the cousin of famous boxing brothers Kevin and Vinny Mitchell, was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer and is currently undergoing treatment at Great Ormand Street Children’s Hospital in London. If the current course of treatment is successful Mitchell will then be transferred to a specialist hospital in America for life saving treatment.
Johnny, who runs the Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, East London, where the Mitchell brothers train at, explained how he became involved in raising funds for Mitchell, “I had a phone call from Alice Mitchell, Kevin and Vinny Mitchell’s mother, speaking about her young nephew Mitchell Huth, five years of age, who has been diagnosed with stage four cancer, it is operable but it’s quite an expensive operation that can only be done in America.
We are going to help Alice with her planned charity run on the 7th November at Central Park, Dagenham. I am going to try and get as many famous boxers involved, both actually on the day as well as raising funds to support the family that have been at Great Ormand Street by Mitchell’s side throughout.
Just today we have already had British Light Middleweight Champion Sam Webb, Kevin & Vinny Mitchell and everyone from the Ultrachem TKO and Jimmy and Mark Tibbs stable have put their names down to take part. I know that by the end of the day we’ll have a lot more.
We’re hoping that people will come out on the 7th to support the boxing stars runners on the day, by making donations.
I know it’s short notice but this is one of those cases were things move fast and we’ve had to react to this now.”
Before leaving his Dagenham home to go and be by Mitchell’s bedside Kevin Mitchell spoke briefly on the phone, “Vinny and me will both be there and I know a lot of our boxing pals will also.
If you can get to Central Park (Dagenham) on Sunday the 7th November please do as any money we raise on the day will make a big difference.”
The run to raise funds for the family of Mitchell Huth will be at Central Park, Dagenham on Sunday 7th November and starts at midday.
Anyone wishing to take part please call Johnny Eames on 07932 999791, or just turn up on the day.
