The Indio Boxing Club has become a second home to the Contreras brothers. They come from a family of 6, forcing the mother to stay at home to care for the youngest two and the father facing struggles non stop for years and years to provide the necessities for his family.
Any young athlete that is watching this , look at the fight in their faces and eyes. Understand that when an athlete is going after a dream it doesn't require nice shoes, nice clothes, nice things. It requires a heart too big for your body. It requires dedication and discipline and sometimes it requires the support from others around you to keep you on track and to keep you headed in the right direction.
To the Contreras Brothers. From us here at the SD Project we say to you....Stick together as brothers, always fight for each other in and out of the ring and hold on to your dream tight. $1,500 was used on new boxing gear to get these boys caught up!!
