DONATE to Zion Hensley!
Want to join me in supporting a good cause? Brighten Up for the Kids has chosen Zion for 2021 to support her in fundraising for her to attend the Junior Olympics and many other national boxing competitions through out the year. She recently won a GOLD MEDAL in the Junior Olympics!!
Zion has had a bloody upcoming in boxing over the last 4 years. Never once wanting to quit, even covered in blood. After dozens of male sparring partners across multiple states, Zion began to catch the eyes of decorated fighters, like Willie the Great Nelson who coached her for 4 months, Darnell Boone, and her mentor of two years Kelly the Ghost Pavlik. She now trains under past Amatuer star Alecia DeFrank, with her husband Rocky DeFrank.
Zion has climbed rankings over 3 years. 2019, 3rd in the USA National Silver Gloves, 2020 USABNC Nationals, silver medalist moving her up the ladder to #2. And, after years of hard work year round, training 2 hours minimum 5 days per week, sparring coming in from around the United States, traveling 8 hour region for sparring. She then brought home Gold-2021 in the USA Junior Olympics for her community and hopes to continue overcoming adversity in the sport dominated by males.
She will be fighting in November and December in other boxing competitions and all donations go directly to Zion's travel expenses.
Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support!
