After a successful boxing event with my girl empowerment program over the weekend, it was pretty cool to catch the movie premiere of Hands of Stone last night at AMC Lennox.
This film chronicles the challenges and successes of Panamanian boxer, Roberto Duran, one of the memorable fighters in the 70’s- 80’s. The legendary Robert DeNiro stars in the film, along with Edgar Rameriez and Usher.
This movie has a bit of everything…you’ll get a history lesson on the relationship between Panama and the U.S., the influence of the mob and the sport of boxing, the importance of doing what you love even if it’s costs you your life and how a true fighter can never really lose.
If you love boxing and good acting, you will enjoy this flim.
I’m so excited about our event this Saturday. We have a few spots left. Please email the address on the flyer if you’re interested. Arrive at 11a to pick out your wraps and sign your consent form. Hope to see you there!

I worked for Columbus Parks and Recreation in my early twenties, so I understand the impact it has on the community.
