Last year I embarked on this journey and recieved overwhelming support from my friends family and community, I made new friends in contenders and coaches. I am so happy that we could make this gym come true because of your donations, to have a place for us to box, and offer boxing to those who can't afford it is an amazing opportunity, let's keep it alive so boxing can change one woman or kids life the way that it changed mine. I have more confidence than ever and no longer say derogatory things about myself, now I belive that I can be an athelete- who come in all shapes and sizes, but all share the same motivation and energy, I'm pumped- Let's do this!


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.
