Hey everyone, my name is Patrick Donison, but most people call me Patty, even though I’m not Irish. I’ve struggled with my weight and overall health for many years, but this year I decided to finally make a conscious decision to get active and stick to it. It just happens that earlier this year when I was devising ways to succeed in this, a former contender of Aprons for Gloves who I work with talked to me about the program. I got hooked on the idea and decided to make it my goal this summer to join and complete the three month rigorous training and competition that is Aprons for Gloves.

Aprons for Gloves, for those of you who do not know is a non profit organization built to provide and support programs for youth and women at risk in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. 

So that’s what I’ll be training for and hopefully fighting for and with your help I can achieve this goal. The end goal is to raise $2000, there are a few deadlines to keep in mind however, I have to raise $500 by July 2nd and then $1500 by August 1st and then finally I need to be at at least $2000 by August 15th. I’m very pumped and excited also terrified to be a part of this event, but it’s gonna be great. If you want to follow my progress I’ll be posting everyday I have a class and also some of my activity in between class. So if you want to follow my journey on Instagram follow me @pattymcpat37.

 

So please help me channel the Little Mac in me and get *Punched Out* for an amazing cause.

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.
