FEATURE: Reese Johnson Providing Guidance for Kids in Boxing, and Life (NHL.com)
The forward volunteers at The Bloc, a boxing gym for young children on the West Side of Chicago, where he trains with students while serving as a mentor.
When Reese Johnson made his first appearance at The Bloc, a boxing gym for young students on the West Side of Chicago, he thought he would put on a pair of boxing gloves and work with some students on their jabbing skills. However, that wasn't the case, as he and other members of the Blackhawks staff painted classrooms as part of the organization's city-wide day of service to kick off the 2022-23 season.
From there, Johnson knew he wanted to be apart of something more.
