BENEFITING: DOWNTOWN BOXING GYM YOUTH PROGRAM
EVENT: Give Detroit Challenge
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2015
We train minds, bodies, and hearts aged 7 - 18 through after-school tutoring, a rigorous physical fitness and boxing program, and community service activities. We make sure our kids have healthful food before they leave, and that they stay safe before, during, and after they leave the gym by offering free transportation between the school, the gym, and home. 100% of our students have graduated high school; most are in college, trade school, or employed full-time.
This fundraiser goes directly to our Academic Program, with the goal of allowing more people into our program. We have more than 500 on our waiting list.
Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program (DBG) is a free after school educational resource for Detroit Youth. The nonprofit develops good citizenship in urban youth through a demanding boxing program in addition to strong academic support and a connection to the community through voluntary service.
