BCBA:  Please Support Our FREE PTSD Wellness & Awareness Program & New Center in Copiague, NY

A privately funded ALL VOLUNTEER 501-C3 charitable organization, BCBA has been serving Long Island by providing quality, structured, sports & fitness programs for youth and Veterans since 2004. All of their programs are designed to empower participants with the self-reliance teachings they'll need, to become Champions in Life!

BCBA begun providing FREE services for Veterans in early 2015.   Some of those services include:
On-site PTSD Advocate
On-site Veterans Benefits Advocate
Special Fitness Workouts & Health Programs   
Patriots Boxing Team
Food/Clothing/Housing Coordinator

BCBA in now located in Copiague, NY.  Their new location continues to offer the fitness programs and boxing camps local youth have come to expect at BCBA.  Though much smaller then their previous locations, their new space still offers their PTSD Wellness & Awarness program for Veterans as well as a small boxing ring to re-start their beloved Jr. Olympic Amateur Boxing Program  (the program that started it all, back in 2004).   

“These last few years have been tough for BCBA, we have had to move several times now.  Having limited resources we can't be choosy about where we go. But it's important we find a space that is both safe and affordable”, said Ray Bettinelli, Head Boxing Coach and Acting Director of Operations for BCBA.

As operations continue, BCBA has begun fundraising to help with the cost of buying its own facility.  BCBA is looking for a permanent location where it can run its programs without interference from landlords.

BCBA humbly asks that you consider helping by making a Tax Deductible Donation of any amount today. For those who can give more, please consider making a monthly donation. Your support also helps BCBA cover the costs of running and providing their FREE Veteran Programs.

“BCBA may have been on the ropes for a bit, but we will never stop fighting when it comes to supporting these kids, our community and those men and women who have so bravely served our Nation.” said Ray Bettinelli.

Please support  BCBA.
