I used to co-own a 30 Minute Hit, a women's cardio kickboxing gym, in Halifax. There was a similar type of event where amateur boxers were fundraising for important causes while training for an amateur boxing fight. At the time, even though i was encouraging other women in our training to believe in themselves and give their best, I thought that i could never do such a thing, that i didn't have what it takes.

When i moved back to Winnipeg I saw Fight for Charity. Seeing the great work Daniel and the PanAm Boxing team do for the event, i decided to challenge myself. I am not someone who likes to stay behind self-imposed boundaries for too long, I want to see what's beyond the line and if I can make it. There's only one way to find out and that is to try it and give your best. So i'm here to push myself, to give it my all and to prove to myself that when i told myself i couldn't do it, i was wrong.

I was part of the 2020 group to step into the ring but we all know what happened then. In 2022 i was recovering from a major surgery so this is my year to train and step into the ring to finish what i started 3 years ago.

We are raising funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association here in Winnipeg / Manitoba. I don't know anyone who doesn't struggle with mental health in one way or another, it is an important part of a person's wellbeing. As a society we are dismantling stigmas and barriers for people struggling with mental health and that's great. I think there is still a lot more work to be done in how we handle mental wellbeing and in making resources available for those who are having a tough time, who are marginalized or under-supported and i'm glad to be able to contribute to that work.

The 2023 Fight for Charity will be held at the RBC Convention Centre on the 29th of April and will feature:

- 12 novice boxing matches

- Casino gaming

- Live music

- Silent auction

- Raffles

- 50/50

We are proud to announce that the 2023 Fight for Charity event is in support of The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).

The Canadian Mental Health Association has a vision for "A Manitoba where mental health is honored as a universal human right." CMHA serve everyone from youth to adults/seniors. Their programs help individuals and families to lead lives filled with meaning and promise. They are a champion for mental health and exist so that Manitobans are mentally healthy, have access to the resources they need to thrive and when a person experiences mental health distress or illness, they have timely access to support for their resilience and recovery.

Research shows that one in three individuals will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Four in five will have family, friends or colleagues who experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Mental illness is very common and is too often downplayed because many people are uncomfortable talking about it. Everyone benefits from good mental health, perhaps now, or in the future, you, your friends or your family may benefit from CMHA's services. For more information on their services/support, please visit their website at https://mbwpg.cmha.ca/

We are so excited to be partnering with CMHA for the 2023 event, and our fundraising goal to raise for them is $50,000. Please help us get there by donating anything you can to this worthy cause and sharing this page. Every dollar counts!!
