FightMetric announces Strength in Numbers program, donating $5 to charity for every minute of Octagon time
Posted 9:37 AM
FightMetric is thrilled to announce our Strength in Numbers campaign to promote charitable giving and support important causes. For every minute UFC fighters spend competing in the Octagon, FightMetric will donate $5 to a worthy charitable organization.
For 2013, FightMetric’s Strength in Numbers program will benefit the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers nationwide and in Europe. Fisher Houses are beautiful homes, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time - during the hospitalization for a combat injury, illness or disease.
To date in 2013, UFC fighters have earned over $15,000 for the Fisher House Foundation with nine events left to go this year. FightMetric will keep track of total Octagon time in the graphic below to allow others to make pledges to an organization of their choice at whatever level they are able. A pledge of even one penny per minute will mean $40-$50 for a worthy cause.
Keep checking fightmetric.com for the running tally for each event and for the year. For more information about the Fisher House Foundation, visit fisherhouse.org.
