Ingrid started boxing because of the competitive spirit, being part of a new community. She belives that, "Hard work really pays off." Come June 6th, she'll be jumping in the ring to put up his dukes and show what she's really made of in front of 1,200+ anxious spectators all in the name of charity. The "Brawl on the Bund" white collar boxing event has been rasing funds for Leo's Foundation since 2010. The foundation raises money for newborns with respiratory failure and gives the families who otherwise could not afford the cost of the healthcare, a chance to do so.
On average it takes 15,000RMB ( 2,400 USD ) to save a child's life!
To date the foundation has saved 81 babies!
The Foundation for Newborns with Respiratory Failure was established in 2008 in memory of Leo Spirit. Leo and his twin brother Tomas were born 3 months prematurely and were cared for by the staff at Fudan Children’s Hospital. Despite the best care and attention of the doctors and nurses, Leo passed away in November 2007 due to respiratory failure. Impressed by the dedication and efforts of the hospital staff, Leo’s parents, Scott and Cecile Spirit, decided to launch the foundation in his memory with the aim of providing access to the facilities of Fudan Children’s Hospital for Families who could not afford to pay for the treatment.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is dedicated to helping care for sick newborn babies. Given the complications of treating tiny, often premature babies and the state of the art facilities and training required, it is fast becoming one of the most expensive units of the hospital. Unfortunately the high cost of treatment means that is is often beyond the means of ordinary and low-income families. The Foundation helps pay for healthcare of premature babies from families that cannot afford to pay for the healthcare themselves. The Foundation has been actively running in Shanghai since 2007, and is now starting a Beijing branch to support the NICU at Beijing Children’s Hospital and provide families with access financial support as in Shanghai.
新生儿呼吸衰竭帮困基金成立于20008年为了纪念死去的Leo Spirit. Leo 和他的孪生兄弟Tomas提前三个月早产后，被送往上海复旦大学附属儿科医院接受全面的治疗。尽管在那里他们得到了医生和护士无微不至的照顾及重视，但Leo最终还是于2007年11月死于呼吸衰竭。 医院工作人员为此辛劳的付出和贡献启发了Leo的父母， Scott和Cecile夫妇，他们决定成立”Leo 基金” 纪念他们的儿子Leo并帮助更多的家庭负担在复旦大学儿科医院治疗的费用。
