It is important for us that these kids continue to have an environment that is safe and rewarding so they can get the guidance and support

The Will County Boxing Gym was founded by Joseph Awinongya. He began this program with the intent on helping young boxers with hopes of becoming professional boxers to come to a place they can trust their trainers and learn from a highly respected team. Ever since the boxing gym had started several years ago, the gym has turned into a safe-haven for children all across the neighborhood of Will county making it a place where they can come after school and be around positive influences like Joseph and fellow boxers. If it weren't for the dedicated efforts of Joseph, his wife, and his trusted friends to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the children of the boxing gym, these children would most likely be in very unpleasant situations. Unfortunately after the state cut the funding for the gym, and the condition of the facility and equipment in dire need of repairs and renovations, Joseph and his team are running out of time to save it from going under.
