Two Former UFC Veterans are teaming up to help launch a new organization called ‘Find A Dream.’ Travis “the Ironman” Fulton, the MMA Industry’s fighter with the largest record and Ricco Rodriguez, the former UFC World Champion, will face off in Waterloo, Iowa on April 20th for the ‘Press Launch’ of the all new ‘Find a Dream’ Organization, a community outreach program.

This organization was a collective brainchild and test practice of Ed Berinobis of Art2Art Entertainment of Waterloo, Iowa and of Thunder Promotions of Birmingham, AL. Berinobis began training local kids in the Central and Northeast Iowa, in 2009 as he was developing this program to see the impact that he and his trainers could have on the community.

The results have been so positive that the club they started is full every day, 6 days a week. Ricciardi, when introduced to the concept, immediately envisioned the success such a program could have nationwide. The two decided to draft the vision and organization, which is called ‘Find A Dream’.

Find A Dream reaches out to the community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream. In addition, it provides a popular, structured program to children of all ages and adults at no charge. The members of the organization also receive great benefit personally by giving back to the community they grew up in. It now has 12 months of proven history. Find A Dream has shown that some of the most challenged lifestyles can be changed with the right support.

To symbolize the validity of dreams for the kids and the adults, ‘Find a Dream’ is fortunate to have national talent adults, showing they have lived one dream and are pursuing another, as Fulton and Rodriguez will battle it out on May 1st in Waterloo to a crowd of 5000 people, just like they did 10 years ago. There will be announcements crediting the commitment of ‘Find A Dream’ Fulton & Rodriguez to the communities of the world beginning with the 1st ‘Find A Dream’ location in Waterloo. FAD expects to receive more volunteers and pledged support as they get others involved in the teachings of martial arts and other positive structured programming to kids across the country, helping to get them off the streets and into a consistent program.

The May 1, 2010 Cage Thug MMA Pro Event will be at McElroy Auditorium in Waterloo, IA.

There is a planned press conference at East Side Recreation at 320 Nevada Street in Waterloo, IA where Travis Fulton and Ricco Rodriguez who will fly in & join members of the press to discuss the Find A Dream concept with Ed Berinobis and his team as well as give press interviews.

Press conference is scheduled for April 20th at 4:30.
