"I just really appreciate everyone here and I'm looking forward to seeing them at the fight on Saturday night. This donation is for all of the things that they do on a daily basis, and everything they do that people don't see. They are always ready when the time comes. I know that the city and the state appreciates everything you do."

"Training in California has really opened my eyes to see so many different cultures and so many different things that are going on here. There's a lot of homeless people on the streets and when I go home I'm going to build homes for the homeless and set up funds for those in need. Being here has given me that extra push to do more."
