“Guys used to tell me when I was a kid I was headed for trouble, to keep my nose clean, all that stuff, but as a kid you don’t believe anything. Here I am now saying the same things to other kids.” 

– Eddie Melo 


The Mission of the Organization is best summed up by the words of Jessica herself. She said the organization is about “helping young at risk amateur boxers experience positive influence and sociability and to help keep them off the streets and in the boxing gym. As well as children who have lost a parent due to a homicide, … giving back to them and sponsoring them through athletics, academics, fine arts… anything that can help lessen the burden and give them support during such a tragic time.”
