Mixed Martial Arts organization donates to United Way BC to aid locals hit hard

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has donated $25,000 to the United for BC Flood Response Fund.

UFC president Dana White made the announcement in late-November and encouraged others to do so in a video that was shared on social media.

The United for BC Flood Response Fund has been organized by United Way BC.

According to the donation webpage, by donating to the United for BC Flood Response Fund, you will support critical relief and urgent recovery efforts in the aftermath of devastating floods that have impacted communities across the province. Your donation will assist those who are displaced or have lost housing, belongings or employment, and who have suffered physical or mental health trauma.

For more information, visit donate.uwbc.ca/flood.

In the past the organization has raised money for disaster relief efforts such as the Australian bushfires of 2020.

The UFC last visited B.C. back on Sept. 14, 2019.
