BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: HEATTEAM 4 KIDS

EVENT DATE: Mar 26, 2016

THE STORY:

DIRECT FROM Istanbul Turkey and currently calls the lower east side home MR. JOHN OZTURK! 

When we asked John if you could relate to our Give A Kid A Dream participants he explained: "We had no parks to play in Turkey when I was growing up, the sports facilities were extremely  limited. My parents forced me to play volleyball at age 12 and I ended up playing into my 30's. But I know what it is to be a kid and not have the right surroundings. So I am fighting in March for the kids so they can fulfill their dream. " 

Further; when he was 18 he moved to the US.  "Although most people are nice here It was still a challenge to adapt to my new surroundings. "

John's role model is his trainer Darryl Pierre. "He is my mentor and I am so happy to be able to take what he teaches me in the ring outside."

John started boxing for fitness  and credits boxing for teaching him how to control his temper and helps him to be more disciplined.
