Our Mission

Fight For Chicago is a 501c3 nonprofit that empowers youth facing adversity with tools for personal growth and leadership through mentoring, discipline and competition promoted by the sport of boxing.

Discipline, Work Ethic & Life Skills

Boxing inspires us to go the distance, to bob and weave, and to roll with the punches. It is these essential qualities of success that we are committed to fostering in the boys and girls living in or near the South Side of Chicago.

With support from corporate and individual donors, F4C sponsors annual gym memberships for at-risk students at the acclaimed Sam Colonna Boxing, MMA & Fitness Gym and provides our “CHAMPS.” with a year of dedicated academic and social mentorship.

Our training program teaches physical and mental strength, resilience, and the pursuit of excellence – in the ring, in the classroom, and in our community.

What we teach our CHAMPS:
C – Commitment
H – Honor
A – Accountability
M – Motivation
P – Perseverance
S – Self-discipline
