Extreme Makeover with Ty Pennington !!

Extreme Makeover Home Edition,had boxing legends Oscar De La Hoya, Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman and ESPN Anchors John Saunders and Brian Kenny make guest appearances in this week's episode. Ty Pennington and his team travel to Geneva, NY to help the Hill family who lives in a 200 year-old farm house, where they run a boxing gym for underprivileged teens. Tim Hill was an aspiring boxer, but his career ended when he broke his back working on a construction site. Since he could no longer box, Tim went back to college for a degree in social work. After college, he worked as a high school counselor.
Tim came up with the idea for the Geneva Boxing Team. For the past ten years, Tim has been training kids for free from eight years old up to twenty-one years old. Tim covers all the training expenses himself, and he has trained three Olympic hopefuls. That is simply great. Tim even has custody over one of the boxers he is training. Aleem Whitfield came from a family with twenty-three children, and he is now an Olympic hopeful. Tim also has three children of his own with his wife Michelle.
Ty Pennington, his design team, local builder Mahoney Design & Build Inc. and hundreds of volunteers will work to rebuild the Hill family’s 200 year old farm house, complete with a small boxing gym. The design team includes Michael Moloney, Ed Sanders, John Littlefield and Didiayer Snyder.
