(WXYZ) — Update: Thanks to the help of our viewers, Downtown Boxing Gym has won the contest for a new van!

Alright, Detroit! We need you to show the country what our voices and your votes can do!

There is a national contest underway, and our city is a contender! The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program could soon receive a mighty van.

This transportation is necessary for more children to benefit from the incredible organization. The contest is called "Small Business, Big Impact." Organizations from across the country were nominated, and The Downtown Boxing Gym, is one of four finalists in the running to win!

The grand prize: a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van. This would allow DBG to provide 1,500 more rides to get more students to the program.

Let’s show the country what Detroit is made of! Please vote at and click on the heart!
