Ilitch Charities Feature: Downtown Boxing Gym

Downtown Boxing Gym is celebrating its 15th year of “training kids for life.” Beyond teaching boxing, the gym provides free, after-school academic programs to students ages 8-18, and continues mentorship and support through age 25. Anytime you can help out your fellow citizen is greatly appreciated on both ends,” said Khali Sweeney, Founder of Downtown Boxing Gym. “We serve almost every school district in the city.” Sweeney accepted a $100,000 grant at the Detroit Sports + Entertainment’s Community Celebration, presented by Ilitch Charities.
