I moved to Vancouver the same year Aprons for Gloves was founded in 2012 and was immediately inspired by the effort and collaboration it must have taken to make the program such a big success. 

The Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach for at-risk women and youth through a sport I have always loved to as a spectator - boxing.

Based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, 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.

Though I never considered myself "at-risk" through my upbringing, the impact of sports in my early years helped me build confidence and instilled many traits that this program provides.  I am very excited to have a part in raising funds for this cause.
