BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: BOX GIVING SLUG FEAST

EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2014

THE STORY:

Deidre "Two Piece" Bethea...

Deidre grew up in ­­­­­­Seattle, Washington.   From an early age, Deirdre was fascinated with the sport of boxing as she dreamed of one day entering the ring. In May, Deirdre learned about Figfhters4Lifea nonprofit charity that supports children in the inner city along with several other worthwhile charities. She learned of Fighters4Life and boxing for charity as her work colleagues:  mario Valencia and Kristen Cabildo trained hard, while raising fund as both boxed for charity in July. Deidre’s roommate, Steve Zangrillo also participated in Gleasons’ July event. . Their journey inspired Deidre as her dream of entering the ring was fulfilled.   Deirdre’s motto, although it may seem cliché: "never give up" is such a powerful statement that leads Deirdre to new places facing challenges and successes along the way. Deirdre’s hero is her grandmother as she taught her all about the important things in life. Dierdre met with the youth through Fighters4Life and Give A Kid A Dream.  Dierdre knew she had to become an integral part of the program  at Gleasons Gym, as she positively affects the city’s youth as well as others.  Her extraordinary opportunity to meet some of the youth involved at Gleasons: Give A Kid a Dream and Fighters4Life , inspire her to give back to others as she shares her time, enthusiasm, and energy both inside and outside the ring. Her motivation, focus, determination and positivity  bring Deirdre to new heights as she is passionate while she focuses on  helping others.  She has overcome adversity as she suffered a car accident in 2011 that caused injuries resulting in painful challenges.  Deidre does not accept defeat as she fought hard to regain her strength, overcoming her injuries and finds herself in good physical shape today as she never looks back with each positive step forward she takes. Charity and giving back to others is paramount for Deidre as she attempts to reach as many people as possible with her helping, compassionate  hands. Deidre currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
