The Blaze Kids Challenge in Chicago

Click on the Picture for BLAZE KIDS Facebook Page

Chicago, IL is known to many as the home of the Bears, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox and of course the Blackhawks. Chicago is also known for it's Deep Dish Pizza, Sears Tower, & Navy Pier, but unfortunately it's known as well for it's overwhelming violence and crime among its youth. The City of Chicago and it's surrounding areas is in need of something that will engage it's youth, something that can bring them together in a positive way; I believe that something is the Blaze Kids Challenge Chicago which will be happening October 26th at the Center-Fit in Montgomery, IL and is also being sponsored by one of MMA's phenomenal apparel lines Intimidation Clothing. This event will challenge kids in ages ranging from 7-17 in Speed, Strength, Explosion, Endurance & more, the kids will have a chance to have fun and interact with other youth in a positive environment not to mention there'll be crazy awesome prizes including Cash, Apparel, Custom Skateboards & more, oh did I forget to mention awesome food including a nice pig roast "Yummm"! The event's head honcho is none other than the Ambassador of Combat Sports Miss Racheal Blaze,  As an Illinois native herself Racheal knows the importance of guiding the youth in the right direction & giving these kids a positive outlet that would deter them from running the streets. Combat Sports has proven to be one of the most positive - confidence building vises for those who may be led in the wrong direction. Our youth today is at the mercy of the unforgiving streets & it's peer pressure to fit in, so to have Miss Blaze put together such an amazing event that could help guide these youngsters into combat sports & away from the violent streets is admirable & courageous to say the least. "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child" is not just an old saying, it's the absolute truth and Racheal is bringing that saying back... So make sure you make plans to attend this amazing event with your kids and bring the whole family to support our future generations!
