For the 2017 season, the Brooklyn Cyclones are looking to highlight honorable charities as a part of our annual Charity Partner Program. It is a great way to raise awareness and funds for the organizations in our area that are doing great work to help those in need. Tuesday July 25th at our annual camp day, we are excited to welcome the “Miracle Man,” boxer Daniel “Danny” Jacobs. Daniel proudly held the WBA middleweight title from 2014 to 2017, but just a few years prior his life was turned upside down when we was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Daniel went from boxing in the ring to fighting for his life. Like any true champion, he persevered and beat the odds.
Through his own personal struggle he was inspired to help others, most specifically children. With that in mind he founded the Daniel Jacobs’ Get in the Ring Foundation in 2013. He started to focus on his life beyond boxing and considered his debt to the cancer community. Daniel formed the Get in the Ring Foundation to help children with their cancer struggles and other life issues he personally dealt with as a child.
The Mission of Get in the Ring Foundation is to help those families by providing early prevention knowledge to decrease childhood cancer occurrences, to provide better health and nutrition for children, turning our children today into leaders of tomorrow. Our desire is for the world to see our efforts and join in as we make a difference in the lives of children.
The Cyclones are proud to partner with Get in the Ring Foundation and are excited to welcome Daniel, his friends and family to MCU Park. Join us as he takes the field tomorrow for a special pre-game ceremony. He will be hanging with us at the ballpark all afternoon, teaching fans about his organization and signing autographs on the concourse.
