In a press release from the Theta Eta chapter, TKE said they have been in contact with their international headquarters regarding the event.
“On March 27, 2018, we were informed that the event did not meet TKE’s Risk Management Guidelines,” the press release said.
The TKE International Headquarters expressed concerns about insurance liability and registration with USA Boxing.
The event was scheduled for April 19, however, TKE members “regret to inform our participants on short notice and are deeply saddened to have this event canceled,” the press release said.
The press release said they look forward to hosting another fundraiser event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the future.
