DuBois WPAL Boxing & Fitness Center Open House On Tuesday (01/23/17)
The Western Pennsylvania Police Athletic League is partnering in a local effort to fight back for young people and is very excited to announce an Open House and FREE Day of workouts in their newly renovated fitness center in Downtown DuBois. Year one is in the books and we could not be more excited about the impacts made locally.
The WPAL Boxing & Fitness Center, located at 37 E. Long Ave., is set to open at 9:00am Tuesday, January, 24th. Entry to the gym will be 100% FREE for anyone that wants to come get a workout in or just take a look around. There will be several FREE group workouts throughout the day. Functional Fitness at 4:00pm and BoxFit at 7:00pm to name a couple. Tours of the facility and a Q&A session will be included. There will also be door prizes and free refreshments.
The WPAL Boxing & Fitness Center is also in the process of putting together an Advisory Board. Anyone interested in helping out this local non-profit organization is welcome to attend. Board members will be able to help with all aspects including fundraising, operations, and events. There will be a short presentation at 6pm. The Board will meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm.
After nearly four years of diligent efforts, organizers say the WPAL could not be more optimistic about the positive impact this gym is having on the local community. The WPAL Boxing & Fitness Center is 100 percent free to everyone between the ages 6 and 18 and anyone currently attending high school. The WPAL, which has hosted four Golden Gloves competitions in DuBois, also encourages local law enforcement officials to work out in its gyms, free of charge, with the kids from the area.
The Police Athletic League is an organization in communities nationwide where volunteers (police officers, coaches, teachers or other community members) help young people, both boys and girls, in sports, with homework and other school-related activities. The gyms create relationships between the volunteers and local youths, relationships that help steer young people away from activities involving crime, violence and drugs. The WPAL gyms give children a place to go after school, on weekends and during the summer months where they can participate in activities of their choice and be surrounded by positive influences.
