Hey!! I’m Marrol and this year I will be participating in Aprons for Gloves! 

This awesome event is to help raise money for the East Side Boxing gym to help give back to the east side community youth who are in need of some guidance in their lives. 

The money goes towards the youth boxing classes that they hold at the gym 5 days a week. They supply some food and they bring in doctors every 2 weeks to give the kids some things they are lacking. 

My goal is to raise $2000 to be able to participate in the boxing event held on August 20th (save the date if you want to see me throw and take some punches). I can’t wait to continue to train my ass off and raise money for a really great cause! 

Any amount that you can donate counts and everything is extremely appreciated.

 

LETS KICK SOME ASS (hopefully not mine) 

 

Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing. Based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the organization was developed by a small group of professionals and entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to re-establish a historic boxing program for at-risk women and youth. The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities. The sport of boxing teaches discipline, respect, hard work and self-control. Training results in positive self-esteem, good health and camaraderie for its practitioners.

Restaurant Rumble 2019

Every year bartenders, chefs, dishwaters, servers, baristas and all sorts of individuals from the Gastown community get together to train at the Eastside Boxing Club to fight in Restaurant Rumble.

 

In order to attend training, each fighter is required to raise $2000 for charity before they can compete at the Rumble.
