Cappy’s Boxing Club finishes strong in last two rounds!

SONY DSCThe Youth Boxers at Cappy’s Boxing Club finished up the final two rounds of the group’s Community Health and Well-Being Project with trips to the Central Cinema and Leschi’s BlueWater Bistro. The Project, sponsored by Swedish Hospital, has actively brought together Youth, local Community Experts and Businesses to promote a wide-ranging dialogue about Community Health.

Kevin Spitzer sat down with the Youth in his restaurant  just outside the screening room at the Central Cinema.  While the Youth Boxers were more likely to know of the Central Cinema from their popular Cartoon Happy Hour, the 30-something adults on the Route were inspired by Spitzer’s knowledge of 80s Cult Classic films.

Later in the week, Robert Harvey, Veteran and bartender at BlueWater Bistro, spoke to the Youth just days before two of the Boxers were preparing for their first competitive match. When asked what he had learned from his experience in the war, Harvey spoke of the way that adversity can challenge a person to go beyond what they think is possible. Advice for Boxers entering the Ring and for Communities as a whole.
