Have you ever wanted to hit me?! Or wished extreme physical discomfort upon me?! For those of you that answered yes (and I am sure that is a lot of you) you will be happy to know that Aprons for Gloves has already succeeded in the latter and later will have no problem fulfilling the former! I am learning to box to help raise money for a great cause:

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.

As a former resident (and at-risk youth) of the Downtown Eastside I relied heavily on the kindness and dedication of outreach workers and I want to give back. I am dedicating myself entirely to this fundraiser and the training program. BUT I need your help! Please give ($1, $5, $10 and $20 .... anything you can) to help this amazing program and to help me get beat up for the next twelve weeks! Thank you all in advance!
