Our PAL boxing program has increased its activity from 3 days a week to 6 days and we have doubled its use. The result is that our canvas ring cover now has rips and wear areas that we have duct taped together.
The cost of a new canvas covering is $750 and we will then try to get a carpet company to donate the installation of it.
We are located in the inner city of Nashua, NH and offer the boxing program to kids under 18 free of charge. In 2007 we enrolled 117 boxers.
We have been raising money by collecting used cell phones and sending them to a recycling company but we have a long way to go.
