For the second year, the East End Boxing Club and Excellence Youth Football league teamed up to teach children to choose peace over violence.
Gloves Over Guns community day offered students resources and activities to remind them violence is not the solution when problems pop up at school.
“The goal is really have to the children know there’s an opportunity to choose something else,” Cara Pressley with Excel to Excellence said. “So again having those local leaders in the community. You can choose gloves by boxing with East End boxing club. You can choose football. You can choose your future.”
