United Way is proud to sponsor for over 5 years the Rockford Patriot's Boxing Club! This gym is in the heart of Midtown District (one of United Way's priority neighborhoods). United Way believes that access to healthy programming in any neighborhood is key to building a Strong Neighborhood. Rockford Patriot's Boxing Club, a program of Patriot's Gateway Community Center, is mostly noted for the participation of Angel Martinez, an Olympic hopeful and 2017 USA Boxing Youth Male Boxer of the Year. And though Angel is all the talk, this weekend the attention is brought back to core of this wonderful program for area youth.

Denim Day is an international activity aimed at showing support for survivors of sexual assault. In 1998, the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans and the Justices reasoned that she must have helped remove them herself, therefore making the rape consensual. Outraged by this ruling, women in the Italian Parliament wore jeans the next day to show their support of the victim.
