MEDFORD -- Spartan Boxing Gym in Medford is sporting a new ring.

The professional boxing ring was donated by the Chaney Family Foundation on Wednesday January 13, 2016. The owner opened the club four years ago to help get kids off the streets. He said his main priority is giving kids and teens a purpose in life.

"I used to see myself there sometimes where they're at and i want to be able to build confidence and morals, " said Troy Wohosky.

Spartan Gym also works with "Life-Art," a creative expression group for at risk teens.

The owner said community support makes the biggest difference in paving the way for youth.
