Myrtle Beach, SC, August 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Tomorrow morning the nonprofit organization Find A Dream will be featured live on Myrtle Beach’s ABC 15 between 5 and 7 a.m.
Find A Dream—a 501 (c) (3) geared toward working with children to provide them with a safe, sanctioned facility to work out and learn the art of boxing, socialize with others and develop the discipline to work towards their dreams in life—recently partnered with One Punch Fitness to open their newest facility.
One Punch Fitness contains 5,000 square feet of state-of-the-art weight machines and cardio equipment, and a 1,400 square feet designated boxing area.
ABC 15 will be meeting with founder of Find A Dream Rod Ricciardi and former professional boxer and co-owner of One Punch Fitness Pete Guthy to talk about the available programs and Find A Dream’s involvement within the community.
“It is great to have the support of the local news come out and help us spread awareness about Find A Dream,” said Rod Ricciardi. “Over the past two years we have made giant strides with our efforts, and we are honored that Pete Guthy and One Punch Fitness opened their doors and offered us part of their facility to run our youth outreach programs.”
Find A Dream has also announced they are in discussions about expanding their operations overseas and opening up boxing camps in Europe. Backing Rod Ricciardi and his efforts about spreading Find A Dream’s message are Olympic gold medalist and former heavyweight boxing champion Ray Mercer, three-time world champion Bobby Czyz, four-time world champion Michael Moorer, Don Steele, Hector Camachor Jr. Chico Sherwood and more.
“On going forward with Find A Dream, Ricciardi continues, “What we are trying to do is help kids of any age and bring positive influence into their lives. We are trying to do it through boxing, martial arts and music, to instill in them discipline and structure. We know that we are not going to be able to help everybody because they’re going to have to want to help themselves, but even if we can make a small difference, that’s what we are trying to do, with as many people as possible.”
Tune in to ABC 15 tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. to learn more about Find A Dream.
