The boxer better known as “Comanche Boy” also serves as the health and fitness promotions coordinator for the camp and lead the children, ages five through 18, in sit-ups, push-ups and stretching each morning to enforce good physical activity. “It's very important to interact with the kids, and lead by example,” he said. The kids also made their own healthy snacks including avocado dip.

During the four-day event, Comanche Boy worked along side colleagues: Amanda Parker, Casey McCarthy, and Director Marilyn Figueroa. And children who attended the camp had several positive things to say about their experience over all.
