Dear Donor, 


We would like to thank all of our funders for helping us bring a Boxing ring from Miami down to Managua, NIcaragua. While we are currently waiting for it to pass through customs, once it does it will be sent immediately to Muelle De Los Bueyes, where we will construct it and allow Nicaragua's Olympic hero, Osmar Bravo, to begin working with the youth of his town.  We are hoping that this is only the beginning for this project, and that once we have gained momentum in Muelle, we will expand this project to other areas of Nicaragua.
This ring has the potenial to have a great impact on the youth of Muelle De Los Bueyes, by offering them a fun activity that promotes great life skills, such as responsibility, hard work, and resilience.   This would not have been possible without the efforts of our donors through GlobalGiving. We appreciate all your support. Thank you for your amazing help!
