“Boxing is so much more than something to watch on TV,” said Toledo City Councilwoman Vanice Williams on Monday, June 21, as she announced the opening of a week-long boxing camp at Smith Park.
A number of boxing coaches from area boxing clubs who will be providing guidance and instruction for youth ages 10-17 joined Williams for the announcement. This Saturday, the culmination of the camp will be a show of amateur boxing in the park.
Asking Toledo residents to support the boxing clubs, Williams said of the clubs: “They came out and answered the cry – doing this will make us a better community; there is a need to save inner-city kids.”
Lunch for the boxing students is being provided by Connecting Kids to Meals during the week and on Saturday they will all receive Title boxing gloves for their daily attendance.
The participating boxing clubs are New Generation, The Bunny Team, Central City, The Bull Pen and Team Cartel.
A second summer camp is planned for August. To register for the free camp in August ca,, 419-214-0775 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form online at https://hipaa.jotform.com/211468571276158
