From NABF President Duane Ford:
When my father reached his ninetieth birthday, he said that the years went by like months and that time was flying by quickly. 2013 flew by so quickly, I now realize that I, too, am getting old.
In my short time, (six months) as President of the North American Boxing Federation, I am blown away with the sincere giving of the members of the NABF and the WBC. It was touching to see so many of our members attend the WBC Cares event in Thailand, and so many continue to help others in whatever manner is needed.
In Victor Hugo’s wonderful book, Les Misérables, Jean Valjean never changed his life until he gave service to someone else …. Cosette …. and took care of her from childhood. We change our lives when we take time to help others.
May this holiday season move you to do something for someone else, for I love the words “To love another person is to see the face of God” – Victor Hugo.
Thank you for all you do for the NABF.
My family and I wish you and yours the most joyous of holiday seasons!
