Growing up, boxing helped Omar Rodriguez get his life on track and taught him the value of discipline. Now a father to two young boys and 14-year-old daughter, Kailey, Omar is passing down these lessons and values to the next generation of Chicagoans. For Kailey, the programs at Austin Boxing Club, now more accessible to the community through collaboration with Believe ChicagoSM, provide her with a safe and appropriate environment to relieve stress and get stronger. Omar uses his time at Austin Boxing Club to become a better leader in his community who shows Chicago’s youth that there’s hope. Together, they’re working to change the stigma of Chicago by reducing crime and violence so Chicago can become the great Windy City they know it is.
