Tom Zbikowski's professional boxing days likely are over, but the Notre Dame football captain still is making an impact on the sport.
Zbikowski will present a check to the Chicago Park District on Friday on behalf of his charity organization to pay for boxing lessons for more than 200 underprivileged children.
''When I was a kid, we all went to the Park District gyms,'' said Zbikowski, who attended a news conference Wednesday to support his friend David Diaz. ''Everyone was allowed into the gyms.
''But things have changed. Now it's like $15 a month, and some kids can't afford that. We want to help out those kids who can't afford to pay for boxing lessons.''
The ceremony is scheduled for noon at Daley Plaza, and it will tout the world amateur boxing championships coming to Chicago in October. Chicago's new Olympic logo also might be unveiled.
