Unite + Fight is a charity boxing event full of camaraderie and raw energy that brings together local police, fire, and ER departments to compete to raise money for fellow first responders in crisis. In years past we have had the honor of donating to public servants battling cancer, ALS, Alzheimer’s, hypothermia, and a kidney transplant.
This year’s recipient, Brooklyn Park Police Officer Emily Krob, is no stranger to Unite + Fight. In 2013 and 2015, she stepped into the ring to fight for St. Paul first responders, a testament of her tough, selfless nature. Our mission was obvious for this year’s Unite + Fight when we learned that Krob was diagnosed with rhabdomysarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue that is rare in adults. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Additional treatment will consist of radiation and surgery, lasting at least one year. As a result of her treatment, she has been placed on medical leave from the job she loves and has been limited in her athletic endeavors.
You are invited to support Emily’s treatment by sponsoring an individual fighter in Unite + Fight
