CHICAGO YOUTH BOXING CLUB Named Among Three World-Wide Finalists by BEYOND SPORT For The Sport For The Environment Award

CHICAGO, IL,¬†August 4, 2011–Beyond Sport, the London-based global organization that promotes, develops and supports the use of sport to drive positive social change across the world, has announced that Chicago Youth Boxing Club (CYBC) has been included on the prestigious Shortlist for the Beyond Sport Awards 2011. By reaching this stage of the judging process, CYBC will travel to attend the third annual Beyond Sport Summit, taking place December 5th through 8th in Cape Town, South Africa. The Summit will be attended by multinational corporations, representatives from professional sports franchises, Olympic and professional athletes, and international civic and political leaders.

Chicago Youth Boxing Club, a nonprofit youth development organization, gives kids the confidence and discipline to defeat adversity and transcend limitations. Our after-school programming focuses on setting goals, strengthening resolve, and surpassing expectations. We accomplish this by engaging at-risk youth through high-quality coaching in the sports of amateur boxing and mixed martial arts. Through achieving their goals in these physically and mentally rigorous sports, our kids learn important life lessons that impact their academic and professional futures. They learn that excellence is a habit rather than a stroke of good fortune. CYBC helps kids orient themselves inside and outside the ring, focusing their attention on minimizing their vulnerability and maximizing the potency of their efforts. The CYBC gym is a safe haven and a second home for kids. (continue reading…)
