Commissioner Art De La Cruz assisted Team Mirabal Boxing with locating a site at the Westside Community Center to train young boxers. Long-time boxing coach Richard Mirabal volunteers his services to train young fighters, ages seven to 18. Mirabel was in need of a place to provide the training. Through the work of Commissioner De La Cruz, space was provided in the backstage area of the Westside Community Center. Additional boxing equipment was also purchased to assist Mirabal with the boxing program.
“This is a great partnership between the county and the private sector and a great program for our youth,” says Commissioner De La Cruz.
