THE STORY:

My name is Bernard Harris. I am a former two-time world champion boxer. I have created a non-profit organization called 'AfterFights'. The goal of my organization is to help empower young adults to keep them off the streets and in the boxing rings. It has always been a passion of mine to be able to give back to the community and supporters that helped me by helping those young adults that are less fortunate, as I too, was in their shoes at one point of my life. We are currently sponsoring amateur boxing exhibitions monthly with approximately 20 bouts on each card (Detroit, MI). The age range of the youth participating is 10 yrs old to young adult. This gives the youth opportunity to spend time doing something constructive and goal oriented versus spending their time on the streets. We have all heard the tales of aspiring young kids that are tragically killed in the streets. We are trying to reduce the chances of this happening to our future bright stars by giving them another choice in life and something they can feel good about themselves for. Our future plans potentially include expansion of these boxing shows across the nation so that every young adult in the country has the chance to participate. Eventually as the program grows, we hope to implement a 24-hr crisis line, educational guidance, and counseling. Not everyone will be a champion in the ring but they will be able to learn that hard work and discipline can help to guide their future so that they are champions in life. Any size donation gets us one step closer to our goals. Please join me in helping to make these dreams a reality.
