At first, most of our participants demonstrate frustration and disappointment at life and seem closed to positive energy of any kind. Then we introduce them to the democratic world of boxing. No matter who you are outside the gym, inside you are a champion in training. It’s the break from circumstances the children need.
We believe that most of our participants have never been encouraged to extend their reach. So the program is challenging in that the boxing training is vigorous and the tutoring is real work. This is combined with personalized counseling and the bonds the kids form with each other. And they do eventually become “Champions of Life” crossing the distance into young miracle workers.
