Hey there donators!
My name is Gavin Evans and I work for Trend Micro, who are a Cyber Security company.
As you may or may not be aware, I am taking part in CRN Fight Night 2017 and raising money for the Rainbow Trust.
What is CRN Fight Night 2017?
CRN Fight Night 2017 is a charity event in it's 10th year that is dedicated to raising money for charity. The event is taking place on 25th May 2017.
A complete sell out every year, the 10 fights are watched by over 500 industry professionals all cheering on for their channel heroes to help raise money for their nominated charities, ultimately improving the lives of thousands of people around the world.
With over 200 applicants this year, I am proud to be one of the competitors in one of the 10 bouts for this year’s 10th Anniversary event.

Who are the Rainbow Trust?
Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke support they offer.
Today there are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care. Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.
I'm sure you will agree that this is a great cause for me to be getting in the boxing ring for.
Why am I doing this?
You may be asking that question. I know I have asked it myself. The answer is that I have been a spectator of this event for the last few years and always thought to myself “I could do that” but never actually took the plunge to enter. However, life is too short to just be a spectator. So, I thought I would challenge myself, get fit and hopefully raise a good amount of money for the Rainbow Trust in the process.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and claim gift aid on a charity's behalf.
I will be updating this blog and you can also follow my progress on the following social media platforms
I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Rainbow Trust Children's Charity - At Rainbow Trust Children's Charity we provide emotional and practical support for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. With the help of the families who share their inspirational stories about the difference Rainbow Trust has made to their lives, we have been able to raise our profile and tell more people about the valuable work that we do. From the humble beginnings of two staff and a kitchen table to work from in 1986, Rainbow is now a national charity. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of staff and volunteers, Rainbow continues to grow year on year and makes progress towards achieving its vision that one day all terminally ill children and their families will have access to a Rainbow carer.
