“The goal of the Houston Police Department boxing association is to promote the physical, mental and academic prosperity of the youth in the community. The HPD boxing association is a proponent in the belief of the importance of mentoring the youth, many of whom face disproportionate risks and challenges. At every possible opportunity, the officers nurture a relationship with the youth to develop trust and cooperation through an unceasing commitment to the community in which we serve.
The mission of the HPD boxing association is to provide community centered activities that help at-risk youth in the second ward/ east end community, and create techniques to help negotiate the daily stressors and life experiences in a positive manner. The boxing association will be partnering with The Knockout Factory East End to develop a youth boxing organization. Through athletics, mentorship and intervention, the partnership between the two organizations will create a youth program that will develop positive, productive and prosperous members of our community.”
Join us for Battle of the Badges on September 14, 2018 at the Humble Civic Center, 8233 Will Clayton Parkway, Humble, TX 77338. All proceeds will go towards Knockout Factory to help pay for their participation in the boxing program, and Assist the Officer, and Assist the Firefighter.
