Mike Tyson has launched a children's foundation to "give kids a fighting chance." The Mike Tyson Cares Foundation will give children from broken homes access to help centers, healthcare, school assistance and job mentoring, shelter and any other help the child might need.
"I am very proud to launch Mike Tyson Cares Foundation," said the former heavyweight champion. "I want my legacy to be about charity and helping children. This is my start."
The foundation will host a gala at TABU in Las Vegas on Dec. 7 to benefit The Shady Tree Foundation and Awakenings, both of which are in line with Tyson's mission.
