Event description
Come along and support Wellington's only Pasifika & Maori community charity boxing event

About this Event

Battle 4 the Pacific (B4TP) is Wellington’s only Pasifika & Maori community charity boxing event. 14 weeks of training topped of by an evening of explosive boxing action!

Why we are doing it?

Most of us have experienced, directly or indirectly, the pain of losing someone to suicide. Pasifika youth are twice as likely to suffer from depression, anxiety issues, or to make a suicide attempt.

Studies suggest a strong link between depression and obesity. Pasifika adults are 2.5 times more likely to be obese than the general New Zealand population and the numbers are even higher amongst Pasifika & Maori children.

We can't sweep these issues under the carpet.

The B4TP team has been working with local Pasifika & Maori charities and community groups since it's inception in 2015 to make sure the proceeds raised on the night go directly into making a positive change into our local communities.

How we did it?

Our own participation in past charity events has inspired us to come together to support a single vision. We've taken a group of over 100 people of all cultures from around the Wellington region. These guys have given it their all over the last 14 weeks. Come along to support the fighters and celebrate the event!

Win or lose, each of them will have earned the feeling of pride and accomplishment knowing that they have given their all, fighting for the ones they’ve lost.
