Poirier, Pacquiao Join the Fight
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
Through their respective foundations, boxing legend Manny Pacquiao and former UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier have teamed up with Justin “The Big Pygmy” Wren’s to support land, water, food, and housing initiatives for the Batwa Pygmies in Uganda, “the most bullied people group in the world.”
The Manny Pacquiao Foundation and Dustin and Jolie Poirier’s The Good Fight Foundation have pledged $50,000 each to help complete the construction of 32 two-bedroom homes for the Pygmies on land brokered for them by Fight for the Forgotten, and purchased with the help of The Good Fight Foundation’s fundraising efforts two years ago.
WHAT WE FIGHT FOR
“I am a fighter. It’s what I do. Now I want to fight the good fight for those who can't.”
- Dustin Poirier, Former UFC Interim Lightweight Champion
I have created a platform for fellow athletes and fans to join together, fight for underserved communities and answer the call of those in need.
A Great PAIR:
DUSTIN POIRIER & ROBERT GRAHAM
“I partnered with Robert Graham, one of my wife’s and my favorite brands for color and personality, to raise awareness for The Good Fight Foundation, a charity I started to help local community and underserved populations.
I challenge my fellow fighters, the UFC community, friends, family and superfans alike to sport this t-shirt and headband and fight the good fight with me.
I’m proud to work with Robert Graham who is donating a portion of the proceeds from these two styles to The Good Fight Foundation.”
--Dustin Poirier, UFC Interim Lightweight
Together, we are bringing awareness of those in need to a global stage to fight The Good Fight.
FIGHTING FOR THE MURPHY FAMILY
In March, 2017 Peyton was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma during his senior year of high school. After receiving treatment and surgery he was in remission and remained under the care of St. Jude’s Cancer Center. Unfortunately, in 2020 Peyton and his family received the devastating news his cancer returned with metastasis to his lungs. Sadly, this set-back has greatly impacted he and his family. He continues to require regular visits to St. Jude’s for chemotherapy and care. Mr. and Mrs. Murphy are doing their best to ensure Peyton’s medical needs and the care of their 3 children are met. However, the family has had tremendous difficulty in meeting the medical expenses and travel requirements.
Mr. and Mrs. Murphy are fighting hard for their family and we would like to bring the community together to make a difference in their lives. We have no doubt we can unite to help this special family in need.
We hope that you will be able to join us for a crawfish boil fundraiser benefitting Peyton and his family. Any support is greatly appreciated!
