ORX Boxing Participates in Mental Health Week at DESS
The ORX Boxing Roadshow took us to the Doha English Speaking School (DESS) for their Mental Health Awareness Week. Our co-founders and coaches, Pete Collins and Sean Perry, had the opportunity to introduce over 200 students and teachers to boxing fundamentals.
Pete and Sean took this opportunity to highlight the importance and the positive effects that regular exercise and participation in sporting activities can have on the mental health and well-being of kids and adults. Both Pete and Sean are passionate about helping adults and kids alike achieve their fitness as well as their mental health wellness goals.
It was great to see a school using sports as a way to introduce wellness and the importance of mental health to its students.
Sports, especially boxing, can help to improve your mood and increase happiness, reduce stress, improve sleep and increase self- confidence.
The ORX coaches had a great time with the students and staff at DESS. It was an honor to introduce the Olympic sport of boxing to the staff and students during such an important week.
