FRESNO PAL BOXING

Since 1992, Fresno PAL Boxing has been doing remarkable things in the lives of young boxers. Fresno PAL Boxing has ensured Fresno youth participate in boxing tournaments throughout the United States and internationally.  Youth between the ages of 8 and 18 participated at no cost to them or their families. The boxing gyms are up-to-date venues with the support of our many volunteers and sponsors. Additionally, each gym is fully stocked with a food pantry. 

ROMAINE PLAYGROUND BOXING

Directed by Retired Police Officer Pete Santellano and Volunteer Rita Ramirez, the program is the longest-running Fresno PAL program. The boxing program is held at Romaine Playground and is open Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Romaine boxing gym is currently undergoing a remodel overhaul and will be fully operational by Thanksgiving 2019. 

HINTON CENTER – BOXING AND COMPUTER/MEDIA CENTER

With community support and grant funds from Kaiser Permanente, and an anonymous generous donor, Fresno PAL has partnered with the Hinton Center to update space at the Hinton Center to make the space available for youth activities, studying and snacks.

The center boasts a boxing gym with daily attendance of 30 plus kids coached by Preacher Joby Jones along with off-duty officers a few days a week. 

During the summer of 2019, the volunteer talents and resources of Habitat for Humanity, the boxing gym, computer lab and chillax room were refurbished with new paints, carpet, flooring and window coverings.

A study hall complete with computers allows Fresno PAL members a place to do homework or get tutoring. To give the kids a place to relax, a chilax room was created with the generous help of Drew Wilson who took the initiative to work a guest bartender gig at Sequoia Brewery – where he raised funds through tips that were matched by the generous Sequoia Brewery owners, Scott and Michelle Kendall. There he raised enough money to allow PAL to buy Mecca Billiards pool table. The space also offers kids a food pantry fully stocked by Fresno PAL board member Jenny Ganson and her incredible energy.
