running sprints at All City
On July 29th, we are taking 9 kids to Kansas City to compete in the Ringside World Championships! Our boxers have been working hard to place in the top spot in their division at the end of the month. Our trip will cost nearly $2,000 for hotel, gas, food, registration and uniforms. Every dollar counts! As always, thank you for supporting the kids of All City!
We are just about a week away from our next boxing show! If you are in St Louis, please come check us out! Thank you for your continued support!
Summer is right around the corner! Help stock our gym with healthy snacks. The majority of the kids in our program receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch at school. During the summer break, this can mean skipped meals and hungry kids. Help us supply them with apples, granola bars and other healthy snacks.
We are pleased to announce that Darren Cunningham of St Louis All City Boxing brought home the bronze medal in the 114 lb. weight class from the 2104 Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas, NV. Darren had a tough bracket and beat the #1 boxer in the country on his route to the bronze medal. We couldn't be more proud of Darren!
We've been busy at All City! We've had a full house every day this week! Seeking support providing an apple for each of our boxers daily. We need approximately 150 apples per week!
Thank you for your support,

Our equipment is here. Our floor ring arrives in 3 days and we plan on opening our doors this week! We purchased 20 - 4' x 6' rubber floor tiles for the gym to help protect the boxers, make a smooth and even surface for our gym floor and to provide a great space to work out for the kids. We need 20 more tiles to complete the floor. Total cost $740. Help us out by sponsoring a tile, we'll paint your name on it!
4x6 rubber tiles weigh 100 pounds each!

We are just days away from opening the doors to St Louis All City Boxing! Thank you for your continued support! An order of equipment has arrived and the gym is painted and prepped for installation too! We are working hard to make it happen in the next week or so. We are currently seeking support to add some protective flooring to the concrete gym floor. We hope to complete at least one of the gym areas with rubber floor mats. Photos of the gym space coming soon with equipment in place! Thank you for being part of our program.

The Team @ St Louis All City Boxing
St Louis All City Boxing - a non-profit organization - We are currently working on applying for our 501(c)3 status. Our EIN # is 90-1036807. Our program is free to all who join our program. We are raising funds to cover the operating costs involved in running a youth program inside of a boxing gym.
There are many boxing gyms focused solely on teaching boxing skills. We believe that boxing is a mechanism to reach urban at-risk youth, in an effort to provide them with the resources, discipline, and support they need in order to build a life for themselves. We have no intention of being just another boxing gym.
Our program isn't just about building champions in the ring. We aim to provide a comprehensive program, academic support, a nutrition program, community building through volunteerism and mentoring so our boxers can be champions outside the ring as well. Spending time with these athletes, giving them a safe place to learn and grow, providing them with the opportunity to see what is outside of this city when traveling to national tournaments - are all components of our program. Our involvement doesn't end when the gloves come off as so many programs do. Help our kids beat the odds!
We help our kids with homework everyday. The kids in our program also get a healthy snack at the gym. Building a team atmosphere in a positive healthy environment is our goal.
Competing in the ring brings all the hard work into focus.
Practicing the skills the athletes learn in the gym.
Time spent with each athlete is invaluable.
Building fitness is a priority at our gym.
We have girls and boys in our program, boxing is for all!
