Support fundraiser for Downtown Eastside boxing program

Dec 19 2017, 10:40 am

Throw your weight and your money around in support of the Aprons For Gloves Boxing Association, a non-profit providing community outreach through boxing.

As part of its 3rd Annual Aprons For Gloves Event, the organization is asking for donations via its Fundrazr account. Already halfway to their $2000 goal, the fundraiser will end July 23.

The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals in the Downtown Eastside who may not have otherwise have access to such activities, resources or support. Boasting that the sport of boxing teaches its participants discipline, respect, hard work and control, Aprons For Gloves promotes positive self-esteem and health for all who attend.

Every year, Aprons For Gloves puts on a charity event, Restaurant Rumble, to benefit innercity kids in the Downtown Eastside. In 2012, they raised $130,000.
