A large part of the required sports equipment was delivered to young boxers, children living in Kirovsky district of Donetsk. At the moment the kids are temporarily training in Lidievka sports facility, until their Centennial (Yubileiny) Sports Palace, which was damaged by Ukrainian artillery fire, is not repaired.
Now Donetsk athletes will have new punching bags, gloves, bag mitts, helmets, mouthguards, skipping ropes, hand grippers and many other things. This became possible thanks to the aid from the congregants of Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) in Florida state (USA), who raised 1000 dollars.
We hope that the legendary Yubileiny Sports Palace, which is pretty much the only healthy place for the youth to spend leisure time in this district of Donetsk, will once again be open to train future champions.
The kids still need dumbbells, barbells and weight plates. Join and help!
