Next Friday night, August 29, Find A Dream and BC Boxing will host a charity exhibition benefit in honor of State Trooper Bradley Wilson who was shot and paralyzed in the line of duty last September.
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 partnered with BC Boxing of Brockport to offer kids and teenagers an outlet where they can learn structure and discipline, and most importantly, keep them off the streets and off of drugs.
Recently the drug epidemic within Northwestern Pennsylvania has gotten beyond out of control, and together Find A Dream and BC Boxing are hoping to combat the problem by not only spreading awareness, but by implementing programs within BC Boxing in which kids can learn boxing and have an environment where they can turn to and learn something positive. Currently BC Boxing offers a Free Kids Boxing class every Sunday at 12:30 p.m. where kids of all ages can come and box for free.
The Trooper Wilson Benefit will feature all of BC Boxing’s boxers who will put on an entertaining night of sparring against one another to show the surrounding community what the boxing club has to offer. Trooper Wilson and his wife Aerika will be in attendance, and all of the proceeds raised from the event will be donated to the couple.
“It’s important for communities to understand the dangers State Troopers and officers put themselves in day in and day out in areas plagued by drugs,” said Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream. “It’s a terrible tragedy what happened to Trooper Bradley Wilson, but it goes to show what a true hero he is, putting his life on the line to keep the citizens of the Brockway and Dubois area safe. Find A Dream and BC Boxing are more than honored and humbled to host the Benefit in his name and have him sit ringside, and we hope we have a packed house of supporters to show their appreciation for him fight night.”
Doors for the Trooper Wilson Benefit will open at 6:30, with the action beginning around 7:30. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20. Entertainment will be provided by Rockstar Productions. Refreshments will be available.
“Come out and enjoy a fun night of boxing and support a true hometown hero,” says Chris Cella, co-owner of BC Boxing. “Whether you are a boxing fan or not, I can promise that you will have a blast, and leave knowing that you did something positive.”
