Our mission is to provide disadvantaged young men and women with an alternative to drug use, gang violence, hopelessness and despair. Founded on the principles that physical well being, moral strength, emotional health and a hopeful outlook can be nurtured simultaneously.

Dear Friends

Now in existence for nearly two decades, Schenectady Youth Boxing & Fitness (Schenectady Ring of Hope Boxing) continues to strive and expand its offerings to the community. It is our mission to offer a safe haven and supportive environment to at-risk youth and young adults within the City of Schenectady by providing an alternative to drug use, gang violence, homelessness and despair and is founded on the principles that physical well-being, moral strength, emotional health and a hopeful outlook can be nurtured simultaneously.

In order to meet our mission and continue to provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to support some of the most vulnerable members of our community each year.

This year our annual appeal goal is $10,000, and your generosity will make a difference by allowing us to continue our work within the community and we ask you to consider a gift to support our ongoing mission. This year, thanks to a generous donation, we are excited to offer you the opportunity to WIN TWO TICKETS TO SEE HAMILTON on AUGUST 14th at PROCTOR’S! For each donation of $50 you will have one chance to win two tickets to the hottest show in town! For a chance to win pledge forms/donations must be received no later than 5pm on August 9th.

We ask that you consider a gift to our annual fund. It is with deep gratitude to supporters like youth that Schenectady Youth Boxing & Fitness (Schenectady Ring of Hope Boxing) looks forward to another year of success. We hope you can join us for one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting our cause. For more information on the efforts and the Schenectady Ring of Hope, please contact Coach Vince Kittle at 518-377-1811. Every dollar makes a difference and we are very grateful for your support.
