THE STORY:

GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM wrote -

Shawn Hoglund was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was inspired to box after he observed drastic results in his friend’s body conditioning.  Shawn soon joined his friends as he enjoyed the mind and  body experience while his adrenalin kept him pushing forward. Shawn’s personal motto: “No good deed goes unpunished” guides Shawn both inside and outside the ring as he always does the right thing without any expectation for reward or recognition. He is guided by his moral compass as he sets goals achieving success while always supporting charity and  helping those in need. Shawn is energetic, focused; driven, funny and a little hot-headed at times. His heroes include his mother, the boxing legend, Jack Johnson; Aaron Purmort ,a  graphic designer who faced his own mortality as he battled terminal cancer courageously while he and his family never lost their sense of humor as they faced  the inevitable. Tim Lawler is another one of Shawn’s heroes along with any individual who has experienced and lived through a difficult life event. Shawn’s greatest achievements include helping raise an incredibly intelligent, talented and socially conscious young man with a good heart. Secondly, beating Super Mario Bros. on 1 life, was a huge feat. While Shawn has never experienced extreme adversity, he has faced personal struggles as Shawn didn't have it easy growing up; he never forgets his roots and the unfortunate kids who went without necessities. While his childhood was less that an optimal situation it empowered him as he is successful in life today. Shawn never loses sight of the people he left  behind. Charity is at the center of his core essence as it is a huge part of his life. He is empathetic and driven to help others. According to Shawn, the act of  taking care of one another is inherently part of the human condition. He feels it is:” hard wired into all  us”; thereby enabling each person the ability to endure and thrive as long as humans have”. Shawn currently resides in  Brooklyn, New York.
