The Community Youth Athletic Center, CYAC, an organization that strives to change the lives of underprivileged youth through the sport of boxing. Founded in 1991 from its humble beginnings of a backyard gym with a punching bag, an old pair of gloves and a homemade boxing ring, The Community Youth Athletic Center has grown into an organization that has continued achieving significant change in the lives of many of San Diego’s youth that have been touched by our, “making a difference, one round at a time” philosophy. For years CYAC has held the Battle of the Badges as a method of raising funds to keep the center going and has grown into a premier fundraising event. This year we are excited to announce that the CYAC 2019 Battle of the Badges will be held back on the historic and legendary USS Midway. We invite you to come out and support our brave men and women in uniform in a event like no other.
