The student walks into the gym: “Hey Coach I got an A on my math test.” The Austin PAL volunteer gives him or her high five. “Way to knockout the test!” the volunteer says with a smile on their face. Years later the former amateur boxer now an adult, the adult struggles in a laboratory. Their drive and discipline fed by hours of athletic training meets a stroke of invention finds a way to modify a gene that knocks out for good breast cancer….all because of a vision. Chief Acevedo “I would rather educate then incarcerate” the Austin PAL boxing program is a weapon against crime the love of coaches changing lives. I have linked the Austin PAL website to this report not only because they are sponsors but three times violent crime has taken people I cared about. The time spent on these photos was donated in loving memory Diane Tilly and Cari Crews (I knew them both). Quite simply I back Acevado’s approach change the life of one of Austin Youth you can change the world for the better.   I encourage all those who read this report to donate to the program.
