New York, NY (8/5/13) – Tomorrow afternoon, DiBella Entertainment’s undefeated Heather “The Heat” Hardy (6-0, 1KO) will be featured on News 12, discussing how she spends most of her free time away from boxing working with both the We Care NY and Give a Kid a Dream Foundations. The Brooklynite Hardy last fought on July 24, as part of the DiBella Entertainment and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s SMS Promotions-promoted Broadway Boxing card at Roseland Ballroom. With her colorful and charismatic personality outside of the ring and warrior-like style inside, the former NY Golden Gloves champion is quickly becoming one of the most popular fighters (both male and female) in all of New York City.
 
“When I first came to Gleasons, Devon (head trainer Devon McCormack) and Bruce (Gleasons’ gym owner Bruce Silverglade) both gave me a chance and helped me start my boxing career during a time when circumstances left me financially unable to pay for my lessons. I am fortunate enough to now have the opportunity to pay it forward, and I’m happy to see the kids we teach doing the same thing,” said Hardy.
 
The Give a Kid a Dream Foundation is a program set up through Brooklyn’s famed Gleason’s Boxing Gym where Hardy trains.  The Foundation, which runs on donations, helps to get inner city kids off of the streets by bringing them into the gym to train at no cost.  Many of the kids are recommended to the gym by their guidance counselors, teachers and probation officers.
 
The We Care NY Foundation was set up to assist communities in Brooklyn and Queens that were hit the hardest by Super Storm Sandy.  Hardy’s mother-whom Heather had been living with at the time, since her own home was the victim of a devastating fire-lost her home during the storm that wreaked havoc along much of the North Eastern coast.
