Atlanta’s Police Athletic League (PAL) has the power to transform or even save young lives.

It’s a time-honored way for kids to find the coping tools and mentors they need to navigate through life. The Guns N’ Hoses amateur boxing tournament between Atlanta police officers and firefighters is PAL’s biggest fundraiser. PAL participants will also square off to demonstrate the boxing skills they’ve learned in the program.

This year the event will be held December 12, at 7:30pm at the Tabernacle. APD’s Marla Rooker tells us more in the video below.
