BATB hopes you and yours had a great Thanksgiving! During the week, members of the Beltway Boxing Community did their part to help make the holiday a good one for those less fortunate.

The Peterson Brothers joined DC Councilmember Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7) at her annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway at the Deanwood Recreation Center in Northeast DC.
Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed and Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell were involved in Safeway's "Feast of Sharing" at the Washington Convention Center.
Then there is Buddy Harrison, proprietor of Old School Boxing Gym in Fort Washington, MD and father of Dusty Harrison. Buddy Harrison's traveled through DC handing out meals to the homeless and it was chronicled by RedEye Films who have done a great job in capturing the Harrison Family's exploits in and out of the ring.
Here's the video.
These are just the ones we have heard about. If other boxers did similar acts during the holidays, please let us know..and thank you!
