Toronto Real Estate Rumble
“But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” Rocky Balboa.
Ask yourself what you are willing to fight for? What you care enough about to step through the ropes and enter the ring for? On the evening of Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017, three Tridel teammates answered that question and entered the ring in support of imagine1day, a part of WE Charity.
After 12 weeks of intense training, including a punishing workout schedule led by Olympic medal winning boxers, a strict diet and numerous sessions in the boxing ring, Andrea DelZotto, Gabriela Vescio and Mojtaba (Mo) Zakeri entered the ring at the Toronto Real Estate Rumble. Each competitor fought in Olympic style bouts of three rounds at two minutes each, overseen by a qualified official and scored by a panel of judges hosted at CBC Studio 40 in Toronto.
First up representing Tridel was Gabriela, who handily won her match by judge’s decision. Mo competed in an exhibition bout of 3 rounds of one minute each after his original opponent was unable to pass the medical check at the beginning of the evening. The evening culminated in an exciting “Main Event”, featuring our own Andrea DelZotto, Executive at Tridel and member of our company’s founding family.
A Vegas Style Gala
The event lived up to its promise of a “True Vegas Fight Night” and the air was electric, with screaming fans, pulsing lights, loud music, and an entertaining host. It was a hard-hitting, exciting and emotional experience for both the fighters and spectators and all of the competitors equipped themselves impressively. The months of training were evident, with real technique and strength on display.
Tridel was a major sponsor of the inaugural Toronto Real Estate (TRE) Rumble and proud to support our teammates and the great work of imagine1day, whose mandate is to affect social improvement in remote communities in rural Ethiopia through education. Overall, the evening was a huge success and enjoyed by all who attended or watched via Facebook Live.
Congratulations on a Successful Event
A huge congratulations to Andrea, Gabriela and Mo on their commitment and the courage they showed in the ring and to the organizers of TRE Rumble on this successful event in support of a great initiative!
