I've decided to take part in this for a few reasons... First of all, it sounds crazy.  Train like a madman three times a week with a bunch of people yelling at you at calling you princess doesn't seem like the funnest thing in the world.  Until you do it.  And you realize that you have no need for boundaries, especially the false ones you've put upon yourself.  You can go even further, harder, and stronger than you ever thought possible. And that's only in the first week.

Secondly, it's going to feel amazing to know that I am part of something that can help out so many people.  The thing that really stood out to me was the plan to create not only a gym for these kids to train, learn discipline and hard work, but to create a room for the kids to sit and concentrate and work on thier homework.  These are things that most of us take for granted, but I've learned recently that we shouldn't. Some kids don't have the chance to go home and work on their studies because their homelife or family won't allow it. But every kid should.

I want to prove to myself that I can do this, and be good at it too. This left jab is going to be killer. 

Thank you so much for supporting me, and especially for supporting this cause.  You're helping to change lives.  Mine and those that will get to benefit from this program.

Here's some well worded info about the cause you are supporting:

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.
