Justin Trudeau, we are calling you out! #SYL_boxing
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, please join us at The Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club on November 25th for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
Shape Your Life (SYL) is a free, recreational boxing program for women who have experienced violence. It is a boxing intervention program intended to improve mental and physical health outcomes for female and trans survivors of family violence.
Since 2007, Brock University’s Department of Kinesiology, the Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, and the not-for-profit organization Opportunity For Advancement, have worked together to develop and deliver the Shape Your Life program, a trauma-informed boxing program for female and trans survivors of family violence.
Since its inception, Shape Your Life has helped more than 1200 participants.
We have exciting news to announce regarding the Government of Canada’s generous contribution to the Shape Your Life program.
You have been in many boxing clubs, but not one like ours. Come and join us – we are calling you out!
Our thanks and love to Steve Lindsay for help with this video!
