Hey there! Thanks for stopping in!!! (I KNEW you'd want to check out how you could get me punched in the face...I'm not surprised!!!)

sooooooOOOOOooooo... Here it is!!!!

My name is Candice Lee Johnson and I like to do stuff! Yep.... you heard me... do stuff!!! My genetic makeup is lacking a very important chromosome that is integral in one's ability to say "NO" to the (sometimes insane) suggestions of others (it's a fact... and you can't argue with science). Couple that inability to say "no" to STUFF with my inexplainably mean competitive-streak (yes... I have made small children cry over a "friendly" game of Candy-Land and a "playful" round of Wii-Boxing) and here you have a recipe for disaster! So, when a friend suggested that I join "Aprons for Gloves", to help raise money to provide a gym for at-risk-youth and battered women, where they are able to work through their stress, keep fit, build their morals, values, & work ethic...it was a no-brainer!!! I would be able to punch my way through my overly-cocky competitve-streak, possibly FINALLY be beaten into submission (yea right... who are we kidding... that will never happen), and give back to the society that we are all guilty of often going through our (busy) daily lives overlooking. I was sold!


So here I am... 2.5 weeks into training... body battered and bruised... but my mind is stronger than ever... and I can't wait to see where this journey takes me... physically and mentally.

Please help me in my jouney...

the support keeps me going...

the support keeps the gym open...

the support is the only way that I stand a chance of getting a fight!!!

So please... click "GIVE"!!! Every dollar makes a diference!!! (and... if you don't... I'll find you... cuz I'm kinda' a boxer now, right?)


*** Restaurant Rumble is a charity boxing match put on by Aprons For Gloves, where people from the service indusry "hang up their aprons" and strap on a pair of boxing gloves, in order to raise money to provide a gym for at-risk-youth and battered women, where they are able to work through their stress, keep fit, build their morals, values, & work ethic.
