Eighteen-year-old boxing prodigy Shakur Stevenson has dreamt of winning a gold medal since he his first tied on the gloves at the ripe old age of five. Thirteen years after his grandfather, Wali Moses, first took him to the gym, Shakur will represent his country at the 2016 Olympic Games.
His family has been by his side since he threw his first punch and they want nothing more than to be in the building with him when he boxes for Team USA in Rio.
Shakur is fully focused on bringing home gold for Team USA but he needs your help to get his family to Brazil to watch him compete in the Olympic Games.
Air travel and housing during the Olympic Games are very expensive but he wants the most important people in his life and those who've supported him throughout his journey to be in Brazil when he fights for gold.
Please help him get his family to Brazil for this once in lifetime experience. Go Team USA!!!
