Fight for Charity – Marten Shlafman

Proudly supporting Fight for Charity – In Support of Pan Am Place

Update posted by Marten Shlafman On Mar 11, 2018

As you probably have heard, I have been challenged by Ernesto Ferritto from CIBC to box against him for Charity. This year’s charity event is In Support of Pan Am Place.

I can let you know the training has been harder than I anticipated. I'm starting to get in the groove of things in my preparations for the event being held at the RBC Convention centre on April 28, 2018, for ticket information please see below or contact me for additional details. The training is teaching me a great deal about the preparations that boxers go through, really appreciate all they do for us.

The 2018 event will be held at the RBC Convention Centre on the 28th of April and will feature:

- 10 novice boxing matches

- Casino gaming

- Silent auction

- Raffles

- 50/50

This year the Fight for charity is in support of Pan Am Place.

Pan Am Place offers a transitional housing program for at-risk youth aged 18-29 who are experiencing, or at-risk of, homelessness. The program offers a supportive environment where youth learn about responsibility, community and discipline. Residents have more in common than just a troubled past, they share a desire to make lasting, positive change in their lives, and Pan Am Place helps them do it.

Many people living on the streets of Winnipeg first experienced homelessness as young adults. Some of them were raised around family conflict, in a group home environment, or in the foster care system. Others have spent time in jail, have suffered debilitating injuries, or struggle with mental health issues, but they all come from an unstable environment, and often haven’t been taught the social skills required for independent living. By helping, supporting, and providing housing to young people that need direction and assistance, we can break the cycle of homelessness before it takes hold of their lives.

Residents typically come from:

- Aging out of Child Family Services

- Federal, provincial or youth jail

- Homeless shelters

- Living on the street

- Escaping an unhealthy home

- Looking to move to the city from the reserve (often due to unhealthy home life)

I have a target of $2,000 personally for the event, so please donate and help me achieve this target.
