London, Dec. 15, 23 — Dr. Faisal Rehman's Showdown in the Downtown, in collaboration with the London Health Science Centre, delivered a knockout punch to kidney disease while simultaneously supporting the Fierce N Fit Special Needs Charitable Organization with a generous donation of $25,000.


Showdown in the Downtown, an annual charity event spearheaded by Dr. Faisal Rehman, has become a beacon of hope for those battling kidney disease. This year, the event reached new heights by extending its impact beyond the realm of health, contributing significantly to the Fierce N Fit Special Needs Charitable Organization.


Fierce N Fit is a Registered Charitable Organization that utilizes the transformative power of boxing and physical exercise to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs. The organization focuses on improving the physical, psychological, and emotional well-being of its members, ensuring an inclusive and supportive community for all.


The $25,000 donation from Dr. Faisal Rehman's charity event will play a key role in sustaining and expanding the Fierce N Fit programs. These funds are crucial for covering various operational costs, including facility rental, insurance, supply fees, and other essential expenses that keep their initiatives running smoothly.


Fierce N Fit serves a diverse range of individuals, including those who are visually and hearing impaired, wheelchair and adaptive individuals, residents of group homes and medical facilities, as well as individuals using ventilator devices. The organization also provides specialized support for individuals with autism, Down syndrome, and other neurological impairments.


"We are immensely grateful for the Showdown in the Downtown's generous contribution, which allows us to continue our mission of providing a safe and supportive space for everyone," said Taveena Kum/Founder & Executive Director of Fierce N Fit. "These funds will empower us to maintain our programs, monthly social activities and extend our reach to even more individuals with special needs, enhancing their social and emotional well-being."


Dr. Faisal Rehman's commitment to making a positive impact on both kidney health and the broader community is truly commendable. The partnership between Showdown in the Downtown and Fierce N Fit exemplifies the profound ripple effects that charitable initiatives can have on individuals' lives.

Branford Twin Valley Zoo – a family-run business.

The story of Twin Valley Zoo: In 1960, the family moved from Holland with nothing. The mother was a Milkmaid, and their father was a Carpenter. Their passion lay in animals, so in 1989, the couple opened an educational petting zoo. Today, they run a thriving local zoo with 70+ species.

The Fierce N Fit Team really enjoyed our visit to the zoo!" We learned a lot and had an amazing day with the animals!
