Dr. Inalsingh, a respected member of the sporting fraternity and executive member of the World Boxing Association has been organizing the event for 14 years in
Trinidad and says that if the message that is delivered guides even one young person to make better choices, then the commitment and efforts have been worth it.  Ms Inalsingh acknowledged the unsung heroes who attended the event including the football, chess and table tennis coaches, teachers, guardians and parents who gave daily guidance and were at the games to support their children. “These children are our future; they will be our leaders, our sports men and women, ambassadors of our nation. We all have our part in giving guidance and love to these young ones so we can create the future we want to see.”
