Hi Everyone!

So I decided to do something a bit crazy this summer.  Please help me raise $2000 for a great, local cause and I will train and WIN an amateur boxing match in July alongside an amazing bunch of fellow service-industry friends.  What could be more fun than seeing your favourite cooks, bartenders, and servers duke it out for charity?  I know what you're thinking.  This girl?! Fighting? I may look smiley and cute, but I have guts, determination, and a strong right punch.  Please read more below about the wonderful cause that is Aprons for Gloves

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.  Fighting outside the gym is not tolerated, and coaches would often go out of their way to check up on the home-life of young participants.

I will be documenting my sore muscles and nosebleeds in a blog:
