Submission Ink announced today that it is teaming up with KnockOuts For Girls to help build awareness for the KnockOuts For Girls cause. KnockOuts For Girls (KO4G) is a 501 (c)(3)
non-profit organization that uses the discipline of boxing to build self esteem, inspire the human spirit, and promote physical fitness to help people facing challenges worldwide. Through female boxing events and fundraisers, KO4G raises money to support its many programs that help
underprivileged girls, women, and those in need.
The first partnered event for Submission Ink and KnockOuts For Girls will be the May 1st Submission Ink Grappling Tournament and MMA Autograph Session which takes place within the family friendly Rock the Ink Tattoo & Entertainment Festival in Ontario, California. It is the hope of both
organizations that such a diverse cross-over event will help build awareness across a broad number of people within the community.
KnockOuts For Girls was formed in 2007 by models who also enjoyed boxing, thus the name “KnockOuts 4 Girls”. KO4G has many chapters nationwide that participate in supporting a number of programs including: College Scolarships, Empowerment Classes for Women, Free Boxing Lessons, Mentorship Programs and more which help serve those in need. KO4G also hosts a number of fundraising events such as charity golf tournaments, boxing matches and more. For more information on KnockOuts For Girls visit www.KO4G.com
