Rip City Boxing Club

The Rip City Boxing Club, located within the Moore Street Community Center/Salvation Army, offers youth and adults a safe environment while providing mentorship, guidance and support through the sport of boxing.

The club focuses on school-age youth in Portland, with a focus on underprivileged and low-income individuals from the metro area. Rip City serves as many as 20 youths per week, many of them from low socio-economic backgrounds who could not afford to be at the gym without financial assistance.

The current program includes leanring discipline, structure, and self-respect.

Hours are Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Rip City Boxing Club is asking for financial contributions to cover costs such as equipment (gloves, uniforms and protective gear) as well as travel expenses for local, state and national competitions. Sponsors will have their business or organization logo printed in the programs, which will be distributed to all in attendance at the upcoming match on January 14. Contributions are tax deductible.
