Denise Lewis

“I’ve grown up in sports and know first hand the power of sports for keeping the youth on the straight and narrow. BoxWise is amazing because it offers a safe place for some of the most disadvantaged young people in our society to come and train, get fed and take sound advice on their futures. Getting them onto courses, into apprenticeships, jobs and back to school. This is what we need more of for sports and for society”
