All proceeds from the tournament will benefit Victory Boxing (VBC), a non-profit, faith based organization committed to addressing gang activity, school truancy and childhood obesity. The mission of VBC is to provide a safe refuge for the youth of South Omaha by pouring Christian principles into lives through the gift of boxing. The organization targets youth age 8-20, who are living in Omaha’s urban communities and are experiencing a shortage of healthy alternatives in their lives, a situation which plays to the advantage of gangs. With little or nothing to do after school, these youths are enticed to join gangs; simply longing to be a part of something and to fill a void in their lives.
