This Is Where Their Journey Begins
House of Boxing Champions Charity (HOBC) is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) organization. It is committed to providing youth boxing and contact sports programs in low-resource communities with the proper protective equipment and educational resources they need to lower the risk of participants getting concussions and other sports-related brain injuries.
To make it safer for youth and young adults in low-resource communities to participate in contact sports offered by underfunded after-school programs, federal and city athletic programs and community athletic centers.
To be a national leader in providing underfunded youth contact sports programs with (1) the proper headgear and protective equipment needed to lower the risk of brain injuries during practices and amateur competitions and (2) funds for workshops that can help educate amateur athletes, parents and trainers about the best practices for preventing sports-related concussions and brain injuries
A frightening statistic: according to the Association of Neurological Surgeons nearly 90 percent of boxers will experience a concussion at least once in their career. Research shows that there are more than 1.7 million documented TBIs annually, 173,285 of which are sports-related TBIs among children and adolescents. Repeated concussions can lead to life-threatening brain swelling, memory loss, impaired judgment, depression, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
As the number of participants in youth sports continues to grow, the incidence of brain injury is proportionally increasing as well. It is imperative to provide youth athletic programs and facilities with the proper headgear, equipment, technology and education to prevent life-altering sports-related brain injuries.
HBOC is championing those efforts every day by targeting underfunded after-school programs, community centers, federal and city athletic programs in low resource communities. Please help us win this critical fight with your financial support and expertise.
