Find A Dream—a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream—has recently announced the newest addition to their team, heavyweight boxer Don “The Man of Steel” Steele.
Through his decorated career inside the squared circle Steele put together an impressive record of 45-4 with 44 KO’s.
Steele came to Find A Dream as he wanted to be part of the organization that makes an impact on the lives of youth around the country.
“I’m very excited to be on board,” said Steele. “Today’s youth doesn’t understand the concept of reality. Kids think there is a reset button on a person’s life, and that’s why there are so many guns being pulled nowadays before people try to talk it out. They don’t understand the value of life.”
In recent months Find A Dream has been focusing on putting together an all star team to help spread awareness throughout the country and help enrich the lives of inner city youth by providing them with boxing, martial arts, computer and educational programs.
They recently have secured a building for their newest facility which they will be opening up shortly in South Carolina, and are focusing their efforts on opening up several other locations.
Steele joins an elite team at Find A Dream, including former boxing champion Ray Mercer, UFC legend and Hall-of-Famer Dan “The Beast” Severn, cruiserweight boxer Bobby Czyz, and actor Quinton Aaron, amongst several others.
“I stand behind Find A Dream 100% for the reason of what they are trying to accomplish.,” said Steele. “Because I feel like if we can get to the youth before they get to that point, by teaching them the basics of what we call the sweet science, be there to mentor them and help them along the right road.”
In 2012 Find A Dream is striving to continue to expand and impact the lives of children throughout various communities. Find A Dream plans to spread their word through boxing and MMA events, car shows, cook-offs, concerts and more in hopes of reaching out to communities and bringing awareness of the necessity to work towards enriching the lives of our youths.
Find A Dream is a nonprofit organization unlike any other. We have partnered with professionals to deliver on our promise of positive change in young lives. Our communities become stronger when our youth is mentored through people of character with a true interest in pouring constructive, character-building activities and input into their lives.
