ARLINGTON, VA. – More than 1,200 fans and 30 fighters joined Haymakers for Hope’s 2nd Annual Beltway Brawl on November 4 to raise awareness for cancer research, care and survivorship. Sincerus Global Solutions Vice President of Business Development Eric Sedlacek joined those in the ring to honor Jennie Goas, a close friend from college at Miami University. Sedlacek, surpassed his $10,000 goal of donations, raising more than $25,000. The event raised nearly $450,000 cumulatively. Sincerus staff, along with Sedlacek’s friends, cheered him on in the crowd as well as serving as a Silver Sponsor for the event.
“I’ve been boxing for a few years, and it was incredible to be able to do something to honor Jennie with a sport that I love,” Sedlacek said. “The support I received from my Sincerus colleagues underscores how leadership emphasizes being a team both at work and outside of it. They know how important this is to me and were there during the months of training leading up to the event. It was empowering to know they had my back, and I could hear them in the stand. Haymakers for Hope outdid themselves with the event and I look forward to continuing to champion this cause with #KOCancer.
Sincerus Global Solutions President & CEO Glen Schuhmacher recalled, “The energy from the crowd and boxers was electrifying. To be a part of something that’s so close to Eric meant a lot to me and Sincerus. His effort not only helped raise money for something we all stand behind, but it was also fun to be part of and see firsthand. It didn’t surprise me to see Eric come out swinging immediately and never give up during the match. He boxed in the ring like he approaches work – always willing to take on any challenge.”
Sedlacek took home the victory for the night after the “biggest comeback I’ve ever seen in Haymakers’ history” described by the 20-year veteran commentator.
