Making Champions and Good Citizens for 25 Years
This year the Portland Boxing Club marks 25 years of “Making Champions and Good Citizens.” As part of our anniversary activities going on throughout the year, we reflected back on some of the Portland Boxing Club’s success stories. These accomplishments come in many forms. The first thing that comes to mind is usually the number of championships won, which just passed the milestone of 200 championships. But below the surface, there are far more remarkable accomplishments happening. Portland Boxing Club is changing lives. Over our 25 years, we have seen many boxers make sacrifices to overcome their personal struggles and achieve their dreams of personal success.
Each boxer has a story of what brought them into the Portland Boxing Club, but it’s their hard work and dedication to achieve a better life that keeps them on the right path.
To share the story behind every sacrifice made and every success story accomplished would require volumes. To mark our Silver Anniversary, we are assembling this collection of stories from the hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles about the Portland Boxing Club’s athletes as inspiration while we embark on our next 25 years.
We invite you to keep checking back as we will be adding to this collection throughout the year.
Unfortunately it takes more then enthusiasm, desire and commitment to sustain a program that produces success like the Portland Boxing Club. If any of these stories inspire you, we ask that you consider donating to the Portland Boxing Club to help us with general operating costs. We rely entirely on donations to operate our facility. Every donation can make a big difference. If you would like to make a donation, please use the link below or contact us a 207-761-0975.
