African Pen Pal Project (2009)
This Project was created to provide an interactive experience for Boxers from different cultures. The Boxers were given the opportunity to read letters sent from Paray Boxing Club members and respond via letter, drawing or comic strip during Youth class. During this process the Boxers were given physical stretching, Body Alignment and strengthening Drills. All participants approached their drills and this assignment with tremendous focus. Each letter written outlined the Boxer’s feelings about Boxing: why they started, why they love it, how long they’ve been training. The letters also gave insight on why each Boxer picked the letter they wished to answer. Through this Project, Cappy’s Youth Boxers interacted with a different culture and found a shared experience.
