City Leaders Explain Money For Boxing Gym
A while back we told you how city council voted for third party funding for a local youth boxing program.
The city took away funding from L.A.P.S. to give 5 thousand dollars to the Laredo Boxing Association.
Some boxers who are part of the organization practice at this gym on Guadalupe Street.
The money will go towards covering coaching, equipment, supplies, and tournaments.
Originally the organization had asked for $7,500, but the city was only able to allocate five-thousand dollars.
