Since 2012, Aprons for Gloves has supported Eastside Boxing in its efforts to provide outreach in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside through the sport of boxing, offering mentorship, training and community to at-risk women and youth.

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.

With the grand opening of the new Eastside Boxing gym, a feat made possible through Aprons for Gloves fundraising since 2012, donations this year will be put towards training programmes that will benefit those most in need in our community.

Sport has long been a transformative force in my life, and in many of yours.  In putting our bodies on the line during this year's Restaurant Rumble, we have the honour of helping open the doors to the same benefits and community that sport has afforded us: confidence, friendship, discipline, humility, work ethic and an incredible amount of love.

Please give what you can, and for whatever reason - for your community, for me, or for the lucky lady who gets to punch me in the nose!

Thank you so much for reading!
