Hurricane Boxing Gym, a 501c3 organization, is owned and operated by Will and Lilly Velez, who founded the gym in 2001 as a refuge for Tampa Bay youth. The gym’s mission is to impact and transform local youth through a boxing program that instills integrity, discipline, respect, and other character-building habits and values.
Synovus has pledged $30,000 in financial support to Tampa’s Hurricane Boxing Gym. The contribution, which will be distributed over three years, will support the gym’s work with at-risk youth in Tampa by covering some of the costs of new equipment, transportation and other operating expenses.
Together with its advertising agency of record, Atlanta-based Fitzgerald & Co, Synovus has also created a 60 second public service announcement (PSA) for Hurricane Boxing Gym. This PSA, which can be seen on local television stations and online, focuses on some of the gym’s clients and the pride they take in themselves and their community.
