2015 Unite & Fight

Hello Police, Fire and EMS!

We are gearing up for our third annual Unite and Fight event, and we need your help! We need men and women; all ages, skill levels, and weights to represent the areas police, fire and EMS departments in a charity boxing event.

The Unite and Fight is an amazing and fun night where local departments all come together and raise money for a fellow officer/firefighter that is in need. Our first year we donated to two St. Paul Firefighters who were battling cancer and last year all proceeds went to Minneapolis police officer recovering from a kidney transplant.

This year we are still determining whom the proceeds will be donated to, so if you have any suggestions please don't hesitate in contacting me.

The event will take place Saturday March 14th at Uppercut Boxing Gym in Northeast Minneapolis.

If you are interested in participating in the event please send an email to me, Alex Freese at with the following:

approximate weight:
phone number:

Official training sessions will begin in January at Uppercut Boxing Gym. But if you want to start training sooner, Lisa owner of Uppercut has graciously offered free classes to all participants of the event. All you need to do is visit and check under class schedule and attend the class you wanted or you can use gym equipment during open hours.

On your first visit please let front desk worker know you are a Unite and Fight participant and you will then fill out the appropriate paperwork.

We could not make this event a success without your participation and this year we would love to have more departments involved. And we need your help please CC, copy, and give this note to all your friends and co-workers of all departments in the area; that includes all police, fire departments and hospital and EMS staff.

Hope to hear from everyone soon,

Alex Freese

From The Family Of Ray Hain
On behalf of Rachel, Sara and myself, I want to add my deep appreciation to all of you for your ongoing support and the part you played in helping our family receive this benefit.

I have to give a very special shout out to Dr. Lurie and Dr. Frascone for their willingness to get involved by providing their helpful medical opinions, to Mike Smith for his unwavering persistence in continuing to push this forward, and also to Brian Rice who pulled together all the missing pieces and so brilliantly wrote an argument that even the Feds finally couldn't refuse!

As you may or may not know, Rachel is a sophomore in college and Sara is a junior in high school.  Both are great students and athletes.  This benefit will assure that they can finish college without worry of significant debt.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Gail Hain
