My Message

I am participating in the Victory Charity Ball to raise money for the Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School Program.

I've been lucky to have great mentors in academics, business, and athletics my whole life.  I'm happy to help with a charity that provides mentorship to youth that need it at a critical time.  Boxing is a great tool for helping.  It is a sport that welcomes everyone from any background.  It is one of the few ways to channel aggression in a positive way.  And aggression quickly turns to humility when you face skilled fighters.  Boxing is also great because the audience is still entertained even if you are not that good.  So long as you try your best and fight with heart.  This is what I hope to achieve on June 7. 

The Ambassador Program is an alternative school program designed to assist youth, who have dropped out of high school, to reengage with learning. The aim is to help them complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, gain valuable life skills, and successfully move into a post-secondary school environment.

The program currently services 15 full time youth, and 4 part-time youth, with one Teacher and one Child and Youth Worker.  Students work at their own pace on academic courses, and participate in a life skills program which focuses on skill building for youth to live independently and successfully. These life skills include learning the basics of cooking and nutrition, physical health and wellness, financial literacy, and personal life management.
