Listen to Ready For Anything podcast Episode 10, with Linda Lacina and Matt Thomas with the audio player below.

You might talk the talk, but would you fight the fight -- in an actual boxing ring?

Training for a physical fight is at the heart of Brawl For A Cause, a non-profit that trains everyday people to compete in a boxing match to raise money for causes in their community. This one-of-a-kind experience helps non-fighters reshape how they look at competition in and out of the ring -- and how they approach discipline and strategy.

“It helps people become a better version of themselves,” says founder Matt Thomas. “There’s a beauty in that.”

Glitzy, action-packed matches don’t just help fighters find their inner hero. They create personal connections through individuals' stories that turn spectators into new supporters of nonprofit causes, essential to drawing the millennial audience that Thomas says charities will need to be successful in the long term.
