Nonprofit Leadership Mentor for President
LEGACY BOXING GYM INC
For the last 5 years I have been running my nonprofit boxing gym. We accomplished some really good things and positively impacted the youth and young adults in our community. I have seen boxers who were getting bullied build their confidence and stop the bullies. I have also seen our boxers develop leadership skills in their personal lives. We have partnered with the police department and provided no-cost women's self defense classes. We have had unity discussions with police officers and my boxers of color.
I believe that there is so much more that we can do such as offering a boxing Parkinson's Disease class, launch an afterschool tutoring program, and increase financial support for our boxers competing in local, regional, state and national events.
We have many opportunities at our fingertips but I need to engage a mentor to provide me with guidance on governance and non-profit management. Our board is engaged and supportive of our mission but I am unable to provide the oversight and direction that they need to be fully engaged in the organization. I would also benefit from the guidance in the area of non-profit management. I am well versed in the management of a a gym and physical fitness business but I would greatly benefit from someone well versed in non-profit management to take our organization to the next level.

Launched as a small business out of his garage, Rich Lox missed boxing and felt a higher calling to get back into the sport and he wanted to give back to the youth in his communities. Boxing had made such an impact on his life and helped him face some of life’s struggles that he wanted to pass along the values he learned from to the youth in our community. So, like many of the dedicated coaches in the sport, he opened up a gym in his garage and started coaching and mentoring boxers. To date, he has worked with over 100 boxers over the years, serving them both in and out of the ring. The impact on the communities he serves is immeasurable.
