Maxim Kids launched one of its biggest events ever at the Blue Ridge Sports Complex in Wallacedene, Kraaifontein. The campaign to end violence against women and children was embraced by everyone there.

Maxim Kids uses boxing as a sport to get the kids to participate in a sport and on the day we managed to get more than 23 knives from the kids in the crowed to exchange them for boxing gloves, so that they can come and join us on Saturdays at the Enkululekweni Primary School.

We provide education and boxing to keep the kids in the area occupied and off the streets and away from gangsterism.

The event brought the kids from Wallacedene together to compete against the kids from Khayelitsha and there was a healthy competition going on, in and outside the ring.

We had hip hop artists from the community entertain the kids, as well as some local groups from the area who gave us a show to remember.

Big thank you to everybody involved and who contributed to making this event one of the most exciting Maxim Kids have been involved in.
