Please join Everlast and USA Boxing at the Children’s Aid Society East Harlem Boys & Girls Club for a special event with the 2008 United States Olympic Boxing Team before they leave for the Olympic Games in Beijing. USA Team coaches and boxers will guide the campers from the Boys & Girls Club through a boxing inspired workout. The team will also be available for interviews, work the mitts with their trainers and sign autographs for all the participants. The camp’s theme for this summer is “The Olympics” and this is the first event that will truly bring the theme to life.
