Happy new year from the Motts 58 Foundation! We look forward to an exciting year with the youth we work with and our supporters. Please check back with us throughout 2016 for announcements and events.
We’d like to start out the year with some exciting news! Felix Gonzalez is headed to the 2016 Junior Open and Youth National Boxing Championships in Reno Nevada. Felix is a former Silver Gloves National Champion and will be traveling to Reno January 3rd-9th to compete. This specific boxing tournament allows youth the opportunity to compete for a spot in the Junior Olympic World Team, on behalf of the United States of America.
Felix has worked incredibly hard and wishes to thank his supporters: Pastor Victor, Sylvia and her husband, John Pandolfino, and Victor Otero. Felix trained with the CYBC team, Luna’s Boxing Gym, Elgin Boxing Club, and Patriots Boxing Club to prepare for Reno. He also thanks his many sparring partners!
Good luck, Felix! We’re cheering you on from Chicago!
