Blackfeet couple launch community center for young people

BROWNING — Frankie Kipp, owner of the Blackfoot Nation Boxing Club, is on a mission to empower Browning’s youth. With plans to build a community center for young people, her dream of providing children with the tools they need to stay healthy and safe is so much closer to reality.

“This boxing club meant so much to me, these kids mean so much to me. I want to keep helping them, letting them know they can do all of these things, so you know, that’s why we’re doing this expansion. He explained.

He hopes to open the center at the end of July and has already worked hard to hire local contractors to build the center next to the already existing boxing gym.

“We have a lot of things planned. Many things. Above all, we want to educate kids about alcohol and drug prevention, help them with community service, and provide activities they can focus on instead of all that negative stuff,”

With twenty years under their belt, Frank and his wife Ember have provided a safe place where children can not only develop a love for a fun sport, but develop a love for themselves. They have both touched many lives and hope to spread that positivity to more children by creating a center that offers activities for all types of interests.

Frank explained, “It’s not about boxing anymore. It’s all about them. All Browning kids, all kids around the world. They need someone in their life to teach them how to make good decisions and if that person is me, then I’m honored.
