Legends Knock out Abuse and Fight for Children with DC's Signature Charity Events

Super storm Sandy may have put a damper on Halloween but not so much on the annual Knock Out Abuse (KOA) and Fight for Children "Fight Night" events that raise millions of dollars each year in DC.  Fight Night again raised a fortune for Fight for Children, the nonprofit that helps DC kids receive a great education and stay healthy so they can learn.

As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all have been touched by this disease indirectly or directly including JC Hayward, and it's for this reason that WUSA-TV and JCHAYWARD.COM wants to make a difference in the community by walking towards a cure.

WUSA-TV will be walking and raising money in October for our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, which takes place on Saturday, October 20 at 10 a.m. at the National Sylvan Theater on the National Mall in D.C.

Walk to honor breast cancer survivors and remember our loved ones who lost their battle.
