I'm putting my face on the line at Restaurant Rumble 2018 in support of Vancouver's Downtown East Side. If you want to see me get beat up, make a contribution so I can complete my training. Come on - you want to see that. Donate.

For the past 3 years I have been working with youth in my community and am currently a graduate counselling student at UBC. I am passionate about supporting my community in any way I can and this is why I have joined Aprons for Gloves this year. I am looking forward to working hard, raising money for a great program, and becoming move involved in my community. With your help raising money for the after school program at Eastside Boxing Club we can support the sustainability and growth of this amazing program!

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 2018

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.
