mkumazec04's Review for Police Athletic League

Rating: 5 stars  

PAL does everything from getting kids involved in sports such as boxing, football, and fishing, to supporting local recreation centers, to providing mentors for inner city children. These kids would not have such great opportunities otherwise and it is such a bright ray of sunshine to inner-city Cleveland. Cleveland is a city that really needs this program! If you can help support Cleveland PAL, it will inspire children, change lives, and eventually change our city for the better!
