FIND A DREAM ANNOUNCES RELOCATION OF HEADQUARTERS TO LOS ANGELES

PhilBoxing.com


Find A Dream—a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream—has recently announced that within the month they will be relocating their headquarters to the Los Angeles area.

What makes Find A Dream unique is the majority of their Board includes former boxing champions and future Hall-of-Famers, including US Olympic Gold medalist and former heavyweight champion Ray Mercer, 3-time world cruiserweight champion Bobby Czyz, 4-time world heavyweight champion Michael Moorer, former champion and renowned trainer Buddy McGirt, Hector Camacho Jr. and more


“Everything has been moving along so great with Find a Dream,” said Board Member Ray Mercer. “We are still kicking on strong in Myrtle Beach, and this will give us a chance to bring to California what we did to the East Coast. Our goal is to continue to expand so we maximize our efforts in reaching the greatest amount of children. I am so honored to be such a proactive foundation in benefiting the lives of children.”

Founded in 2010, the organization has prominently expanded on an international level as they have opened up two facilities in the United States, and have participated in various speaking engagements through Europe to spread awareness of the importance of providing children with a healthy outlet to allow them to work towards their goals in life and have a structure to follow.

“We have continued to progress over the past three years, and the move to California makes the most sense,” said Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream. “We need to be right in the mix of the Mecca of the entertainment, sports and social world, and I have no doubts we will find much success on the west coast. Find A Dream’s impact is felt every time an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.”

Last year Find A Dream opened up a facility in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and their ongoing plans for 2013 include opening up another facility in the LA area and organizing several fundraisers to promote the foundation’s efforts.

“We would like to give a special thanks to Pete Guthrie and One Punch Fitness in Myrtle Beach who opened up their facility to Find A Dream last year,” Ricciardi continued. “It is the ongoing support from people like Pete who allow us to thrive and offer a place for kids to go to train. One Punch Fitness is the area’s premier workout facility and boxing training club, and Find A Dream is more than honored to be associated with them.”

Find A Dream is a nonprofit organization unlike any other. They have partnered with professionals to deliver on their promise of positive change in young lives.
