In 2010, the current directors of our organization came together to create “Veterans Boxing Foundation of NY, Ring 10″ to give those of you who are interested the opportunity to help those in need. We are thrilled to report that we are in our fourth year of serving the boxing community and its members.
Ring 10 originated from the idea of helping all those who have found themselves at a disadvantage. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help and assistance where the need is greatest, and will continue to do so as long as we are able.
Unlike other major sports that have a union to represent the athlete, professional boxers have no such safety net. Even without a union it is hard to believe that legendary fighters such as Mickey Walker, Sandy Saddler, Kid Gavilan, Ken Norton and Joe Frazier would not be taken care of by the organized boxing establishment when they fell on hard times after retiring from the ring. But, unfortunately, that is the case. We are proud to say that Ring 10 of NY is stepping up and making a difference with assistance and contributions to all impoverished and/or ailing fighters (regardless of background or origin). Our goal is simple: to help retired boxers who are in need.
You can support our cause by making a donation or becoming a member at the bottom of this page. We are a non-profit charity with ALL monies, and we mean ALL, going to the fighters we support. One hundred percent of your tax deductible membership fees and donations go towards helping all indigent former fighters. None of your donation dollars go to any members or directors of Ring 10. It is all voluntary. We are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. You can also support Ring 10 by following us on FB, Twitter and Instagram to help spread our mission, @ring10ny.
Ring 10 Annual Gala 2014 ~ To Benefit All Fighters In Need
On behalf of Ring 10, we would like to express our profound gratitude to all those who attended our 4th Annual Gala. The event was a resounding success as so many friends and loyal supporters of Ring 10 joined us to celebrate the fourth year of our foundation. We would like to thank the donors and volunteers for their contribution to the success of it all. The generous donations will allow us to continue serving our boxing community. Together we are enabling individuals in our fight community to rise above the difficulties they face to succeed and reach their full potential. Our event would not have been successful without all of your support. Thank you for helping us make a difference.
2014 Award Recipients
Ring 10 continues to accept donations that will go directly to Magomed Abdusalamov and his family. Click on the donate button at the bottom of this page.
Magomed’s wife, Bakanay Abdusalamova, says her husband’s physical condition is improving, but unfortunately the process is slower than she would have liked.
“Many times he has tried to speak, his speech is very difficult to understand. He writes to me on Ipads, running his finger across the screen and draws pictures that he dedicates to me. In addition, Magomed is now able to eat independently. He is holding a spoon in his left hand, he is good at chewing and swallows. He even sometimes requests something for me to cook, and I cook him meals of Dagestani cuisine. Magomed responds to jokes. He laughs when people are joking and he kids with me sometimes. The right side of the body is still paralyzed, but Magomed sometimes moves his right hand and foot, he feels the touch of his right arm and leg.”
“Once again, I want to thank those who did not forget about Magomed, who continue to support and pray for him. We are eternally grateful for the staff and doctors at Helen Hayes and Mt. Sinai Roosevelt Hospitals for all of their efforts to get Mago to the point where he could finally come home,” said Bakanay Abdusalamova, who also expressed appreciation to the Ring 10 Charity for its support and to everyone who has been helping the family during its ordeal.
Ring 10 would like to thank those of you who donated selflessly to this family. Your assistance will give them greater peace of mind at this very challenging time. One hundred percent of your generosity has directly benefited The Abdusalamov Family. Thank you for making a difference in helping one of our Brothers.
Let us continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Magomed and his family. Again, all of your money goes to Magomed and his family. Ring 10 keeps NOTHING. We are a 501(c)3 approved organization.
