Boxing Great Helps Kids Go For Their Dreams


Michael Moorer—three-time heavyweight champion and one-time light heavyweight boxing champion—has recently been added to an elite list of boxers who make up the Board of Directors for the renowned nonprofit organization Find A Dream. 

Over the past few months Find A Dream—a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream—has built their all-star team with several recognizable names in the boxing game—Olympic Gold Medalist and former heavyweight champion Ray Mercer, three-time world champion Bobby Czyz, Don Steele and Hector Camacho Jr. 

“I think working with Find A Dream is going to be a great thing,” said Moorer.  “The organization is all about working with the kids.  My main objective is to work with kids and help provide a positive influence in their lives, and Find A Dream has that established platform.  I grew up in poverty, and know all about dealing with temptations and the hard choices kids have to make.  We didn’t have too many channels or outlets like Find A Dream, so to be able to give back is important and means a lot to me.”

Through his career Moorer (52-4, 40 KO) established himself as one of the top heavyweights in the world, defeating Evander Holyfield in a 10-round battle, and exchanging leather with the likes of George Foreman, Frans Botha and more. 

“Michael Moorer was a class act inside and out of the ring, and continues to be,” said Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream.  “He accentuates everything our organization stands for, and we are excited about moving forward and getting him involved.  For Michael, as it is with all of our Board Members, it is all about the kids, first and foremost; we all strive to help make a difference, and together we believe we can provide a positive impact on the lives of youth around the world.”

In addition to the acquisition of Michael Moorer, Find A Dream has recently garnered a large amount of exposure due to the announcement of their upcoming celebrity dinner/meet and greet with Mercer, Czyz, and Moorer, hosted by Gotham City Films.

Going forward in September Find A Dream has also announced they will be hosting two different events in their home base of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where the public can have the chance to meet and greet with the various stars aboard the nonprofit organization.
