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.
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.
