The Fire in the Ring Boxing Club (FITR) is a program committed to the training of youth ages 8 to 18, from all levels of skill and fitness with emphasis on making the program available to all San Francisco, Brisbane, Daly City and Bay Area neighborhoods. Fire in the Ring's boxing program is designed to build confidence, sportsmanship and leadership. It also aids our youth, both male and female, of all backgrounds, to realize their full potential and excel in all areas of their lives.
The focus of the gym is to help kids gain confidence, have a positive outlet to work through their emotions, and learn how to respect each other and the equipment they use. I know a lot of donors have issues with supporting boxing, especially with children, but a very very small fraction of these kids ever end up sparring or competing. Most come in to train, use the gym, and be a part of a team when their families cannot afford other activities. We need your help to keep our doors open and continue to do what we love.
As some of you might be aware FITR has been struggling to find funding during COVID. We are afraid if we do not start reaching out to our community for help we will have to close our doors in the near future. We recognize that this is a hard time for everyone; anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. We cannot wait to be open again serving our community.
