Aprons for Gloves is fundraising for their 5th annual Restaurant Rumble.
Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing, and since then they’ve raised nearly $400,000 with FundRazr.
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 2016
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.
How Aprons for Gloves uses Fundrazr
In order to attend training, each fighter is required to raise $2000 for charity before they can compete at the Rumble. Aprons for Gloves uses FundRazr’s sub-campaigns to easily track who’s raising money for the cause while making it as easy as possible for contenders to engage their audiences with Aprons for Gloves-branded content.
