Why is this important?
As a volunteer boxing coach with nearly twenty years of experience, I have worked with athletes who exhibited the potential to reach very far in the sport, but they lacked the financial means to cover the various expenses including food, supplements and particularly access to badly needed mainstream marketing channels to promote them. These individuals often come from low-income families and turn to the sport not only for physical development but more importantly to fight poverty and criminality.
Too often these athletes remain invisible to the wider public. This was formed to make the invisible, visible and it is why we want to help grow our Youth Development projects, through our A Pound A Punch Fundraising Campaign.
How can we make this happen?
After investing in Shadowboxruk myself and receiving donations from the community, we are driven by volunteers who donate their time to the various aspects of the cause.
Shadowboxruk offers a number of different programs, each tailored to its audience and principal aims.
Our tagline is: Invisible To Visible. We help athletes to:
- Empower themselves
- Grow in confidence
- Realise their potential
- Develop in the sport of boxing
- Showcase their skills to acquire funding
Our work started in June 2018 and we have achieved fantastic results working with boxers from both the amateur and professional ranks. We also worked with coaches and in coach development.
We need to raise £20,00 to make our project happen. We appreciate we are in a pandemic, so for as little as £1 you can help change the lives of others.
If you are passionate about sport, boxing, education and improving the lives of struggling young people, please make a donation. Your support will ensure that we can start changing lives and making the invisible, visible.
social media is crucial for this campaign, so please help us spread the word on:
