Oh hey! 

My names Roxanne and I'm an actor currently serving and bartending at Steamworks. Shocking!

I'd been aware of AFG and the amazing work they do for a couple of years now, through other work colleagues competing, but never dreamed of stepping into the ring myself.

However this year I felt it was time to get the gloves back on and step up to the challenge both mentally and physically.

The best part is that I get to contribute to the huge support ESB already provides the DTES, and help make a difference to all those that don't have the same opportunities we do.

From after school programs for at-risk youth to self-defence classes for women, all the money you help raise will be put towards providing a safe and educational training environment for those that most need it. If you would like more info on all the programs provided please let me know.

Honestly no donation is too small, I appreciate each and everyone of you prepared to help me on my journey into the ring.

Let's all fight for a great cause together!

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.
