Who: Myself (Zoe), fighting on behalf of Fortune Sound Club.

What:  Est. 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. Restaurant Rumble challenges people in the bar/restaurant industry to train intensively and fight to the ring, all whilst fundraising along the way.

Why:

The community: Fortune Sound Club is situated blocks from the core of the DTES. We support the community when the opportunity arises to contribute, and this is a huge one, that I'm proud to rep on behalf of our venue. The DTES requires a wide range of  resources, to support its very diverse community. This is one approach that has been a huge success over the past few years: taking the principles and practices of boxing, and offering them to  individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities.

The stereotypes: A lot of people still believe that athletes who consume a plant-based diet (vegetarian or vegan), are inherently weaker, have less energy, and cannot retain muscle mass. This is a chance to challenge these assumptions, and show just what plant-powered bodies can do!

The challenge: 3 months of intensive training lead up to one night of title fights in July. Contenders need to raise $2,000 each to be eligible for these fights.

Please help support AFG, Restaurant Rumble, and throw a few dollars in the ring!
