Congratulations to Mark ‘The Closer’ Fletcher, who participated in the modern day Australian Royal Queensbury Championship on Friday night. The challenge takes everyday people out of their comfort zone and provides them with an intense, emotional challenge in a safe environment, that is life changing on a multitude of levels. It was all for a good cause, to raise money for Australia’s sick and disadvantaged children through ToyBox International. Well done Fletch!
