Last night Lyke’s gym opened its doors to the community. In the true spirit of Thanksgiving, Seconds Out Promotions, Lykes Gym, Epic Realty Inc, and Cub Foods worked along side some of Minnesota’s best boxers to give back. Working with several churches in the community, family’s who maybe would not have been able to enjoy the usual Thanksgiving feast will now have it with all the fixings. Joey Abell, Caleb Truax, and the other professional boxers spent much of the evening handing out boxes loaded with Thanksgiving delights.
Caleb Truax shared that when he was growing up, his family didnt always have the funds to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table, and that he was happy to be able to help in his way. That spirit of giving was on full display last night as the fighters, managers, and trainers were all doing thier part in handing out Thanksgiving meals. Tong Grygelko had a yellow vest and flashlight to direct traffic outside of the gym. He said these tough economic times have hit everyone hard and added that there are some within the gym family who will now also be able to have Thanksgiving meals.
Isn’t this what the Holiday Season is supposed to be all about? Our hats go off to everyone involved.
