BOXING has changed my life...

I’ve learned to roll with the punches and how to take a hit from time to time.  It has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever pursued and I am beyond excited to fight at Aprons for Gloves and help at risk youth in the Downtown Eastside have access and opportunity not only to be healthier but most importantly build discipline and self-esteem through this amazing sport.

You can help be a part of that too! By donating you will be helping to provide a safe place to learn, gain strength, practice healthy habits, and eat nutritious meals after school. That alone is and worth getting in the ring for!! 

Whether you are up to support a great cause or just eager to see me get knocked around please show your support by making a donation of any amount. 

Thank you for being in my corner!

PS donations of $500 or greater are eligible for tax receipts….hint hint.

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.

Restaurant Rumble 2019

Every year bartenders, chefs, dishwaters, servers, baristas and all sorts of individuals from the Gastown community get together to train at the Eastside Boxing Club to fight in Restaurant Rumble.

 

In order to attend training, each fighter is required to raise $2000 for charity before they can compete at the Rumble.
