CHAMPS BOXING™️ Sponsors Local Race

This past weekend, David Jeansonne and his latest venture CHAMPS BOXING™️ sponsored the fourth annual Bursting with Speed 5k and half mile race!

The Bursting with Speed event is held in memory of Benny Burst, a faith-filled family man, and an avid runner. Burst was a native of the New Orleans area. In June 2013, Burst was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and began chemotherapy. A few months later, Burst lost his fight, and that is why the Bursting with Speed race is held to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The LLS is the largest voluntary health foundation devoted to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

The race is hosted by the New Orleans Track Club, a not-for-profit organization and a member of the Road Runners Club of America and USA Track & Field. Additionally, CHAMPS BOXING™️ and other local organizations were able to sponsor the event. Pre-registered participants were eligible to win cash prizes and gifts donated by CHAMPS BOXING™️ and other sponsors.  

CHAMPS BOXING™️is proud to support its local community. To learn more about CHAMPS BOXING™️, visit their website at ChampsBoxing.com!

David Sends a Student to Prom!

Recently, a teacher at a New Orleans high school told David about one of her students who couldn’t afford to go to prom. David immediately decided to sponsor the student. He made sure to cover all of the costs of the student’s prom, and he even provided his limo bus for the student’s transportation.

 

As luck would have it, on the night of the prom, David’s driver had an emergency and wasn’t able to pick up the students. Luckily David was able to call another bus to pick up the kids at the last minute.

 

At the end of the night, the student sent David a picture of himself at the prom, wearing a crown with a huge smile. This student, who hadn’t planned to go to the prom at all because of finances, had now become PROM KING!

David was grateful to be able to make a difference for this student. This is just another example of the power of doing the right thing and the rewards that come with it–not only for the student, but for David as well.
