Joining Aprons for Gloves this year for me was all about community. Working in restaurants across Canada, it always becomes last priority to look around at our city and our neighbourhoods and search for ways to make change. Let's face it, we're all too busy. Since moving to Vancouver, I've been fortunate to join a community so powerful that it's starting to make change everywhere around the city. It's now time to start giving back to the city and communities that inspire me everyday!

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.
