This past weekend, Youth In Motion participants were in the midst of a sold out show at the Chaifetz Arena. Dav Pilkey, the author of Captain Underpants and Dog Man series, came through St. Louis on his “Do Good Tour.” Dav’s life story was extremely inspirational (He had all participant’s full attention) as he shared his journey to success. He had to overcome many obstacles before his success was reached.
Thanks to Melissa and Holland (Novel Neighbor) for donating 50 tickets to our great cause! On our way home in the van, our participants were so quiet as they were reading “Dog Man (For Whom The Ball Rolls).” One participant finished the entire book before reaching his house.
I also wanted to give thanks to Dr. Jose Jones (Boxing Therapy) and the Missouri Thorns for sponsoring the “Back To School” event at the Boxing Club in St. Charles, Missouri. YIM participants came home with a ton of school supplies along with great memories boxing in the ring!
