Boxing Community Fights Back Against the Impact of COVID-19
BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When Carrie Barry, founder of the Corner Boxing Club and former national amateur boxing champion, opened her gym in 2014 she had a vision. She wanted it to be a place that welcomed everyone, a place where people came to overcome their challenges and a place that the community could rely upon. When you step into her gym, you know that she has accomplished just that and this weekend, 26 contenders will step into the ring, proving that boxing unites our community.
