Review for Knockouts For Girls, San Juan Capo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

KnockOuts For Girls is an amazing 501 (C)(3) non-profit made up of a dedicated, committed group of women who volunteer their time to improve the lives of others. Through female boxing events and other fundraisers, we raise money to support our many programs, including free boxing lessons for girls, Empowerment Classes for Women, College Scholarships for underprivileged girls, a Mentorship Program, a Make a Little Girl Smile Program, a Women in Need Program and a monthly GIVE BACK. Visit our website: www.KO4G.org to see all the wonderful things we do (boxing classes for blind children, a toy drive in which we fulfilled the wish lists of all 66 foster children living at Hillsides in Pasadena and so much more!).
