Kate was born and raised in Vancouver & has been living on the Eastside for 10 years.  She started working as a peer support worker on the Downtown Eastside, assisting youth with mental illnesses, eventually moving to be a support worker working with addicts and chronic homelessness.  Kate is passionate about this work as she is diagnosed with a mental illness herself and has overcome a lot to be able to give back to the community.

 

Boxing has been a source of empowerment for Kate.  Working hard and turning all your fear, anger, and anxiety into something that makes you strong and positive is the real reason Kate chose to raise money for Aprons For Gloves.  Kate aims to inspire anyone struggling with mental illness to take whatever it is you have and turn it into something positive.

 

Please support however you can!  Anything is appreciated and its all going towards the best of causes!

 

 

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.
