I'm running the Harrisburg Marathon as part of Callahan Fights' efforts to raise money for Notre Dame's summer service-learning program in Bangladesh benefitting the schools there supported by the Notre Dame boxing team of which Eric Callahan and I were members. The mission of the Callahan Fights Organization is to promote the giving and self-less spirit of Eric Callahan by providing awareness and monetary support for the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh through the Bengal Bouts program at Notre Dame University. Eric was a proud four-year participant of the Bengal Bouts and the goal of Callahan Fights is to not only support the Missions but to pay for two boxers to serve in Bangladesh each summer: Callahan Fights for the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh. *** The immediate monetary goal of Callahan Fights is to raise $100,000 - the necessary amount to set up an endowment in Eric's name from which the yearly interest will provide for sending at least one boxer over to Bangladesh every summer. Eric was a Bengal Bouts boxer, a man of adventure, and a guy with a big heart, and this fund is tied into a cause for which he literally fought. Just as memories of Eric will remain with us forever, we want something tied to Eric that honors him for years to come.
