Joseph Parker puts his (heavy)weight behind the work of the Middlemore Foundation

Boxing star Joseph Parker, who grew up in Mangere, is putting his (heavy)weight behind the work of the Middlemore Foundation.

Joseph has signed on as an Ambassador for the Foundation, which partners with communities to raise funds to initiate and support key projects in health, homes and education within Counties Manukau.

Joseph’s first ambassadorial duties included visits to Edmund Hillary School and Red Hill Primary School, both in Papakura, where the kids chatted excitedly with their ‘local hero’ about his boxing career and asked him about his time growing up in their neighbourhood. Joseph’s effortless rapport with the kids is evident in videos of the school visits.
