Fight To Educate, presented in part this year by Alrich Cabinet, is a unique charity event that combines a love of sports with the vision of assisting children and seniors in need, who with fundraisers like this could be ‘down for the count.’ During the past 11 years, Fight To Educate has raised more than $500,000 in donations benefitting local New Hampshire non-profit organizations.

Proceeds from the 12th annual Fight To Educate will benefit SEE Science Center (, The Bobby Stephens Fund for Education (, and New Horizons for New Hampshire.
