With the upcoming 2nd anniversary show (tonight) for Resistance Pro, a press release was put out regarding the show and R-Pro’s Positive Outreach Program (POP).  Below is an excerpt from the press release regarding the POP program with some comments by Corgan.

PRESS RELEASE:

Since its inception, Resistance Pro has made a commitment to the Chicagoland community and young wrestling fans. Now in its third month, Resistance Pro has adopted the “Positive Outreach Program” (POP) created by Resistance Pro star C-Red. POP was created to motivate students to maintain a positive attitude in and out of school, to follow their dreams, be productive members of society and encourage a positive outlook on life. POP events are planned at area schools where Corgan, the Baron brothers, C-Red and other Resistance Pro stars put on a show, interact with students, answer questions and send messages of living a positive, proactive life to youngsters.
“I’m very proud of what Resistance Pro has done in the last two years and am especially proud of the POP program,” says Corgan. “We aim to encourage young people to live a positive life and never give up on their dreams. Everyone in Resistance Pro followed their dreams. Young people should have the encouragement to do the same.”
The first POP event will be Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 at Amudensen High School. Hundreds of
children will gather in the gym for a 9:30 a.m. program consisting of a preview wrestling match and interaction with Resistance Pro stars after.

A second POP event will be Monday, Nov. 24, 2013 at Neil Armstrong Elementary School, 5030 Imperial Drive, Richton Park, Ill. The game show style events will take place from 12:30 p.m. –1:30 p.m. for kindergarten through third grades and then from 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. for grades four and five. The “Jeopardy” style event will put Resistance Pro stars against students at Neil Armstrong Elementary School.
