Our Stories

Presenting youth with dedicated and positive role models is truly a way to help them to overcome these life obstacles. In this, I feel like we need to take all youth off the rough and tough city streets and allow them to see what beauty is. Big City Mountaineers is a wonderful program and my only wish is that they could do this everywhere it is need. I want to thank all at Big City Mountaineers for helping us at East Oakland Boxing Association for the last two years. We all really appreciate the work you do!
