My Message

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

As a young girl, I got my first taste for Boxing. I loved the intensity of the workout and the rush I felt every time I practised my jabs. Since then, I have become a personal trainer and a firefighter, both jobs that I love and challenge me daily. This competition comes at a perfect time, as I am looking for new challenges for myself and opportunities to give back to the community. This competition is the perfect combination.  As a mother of a young son and a former athlete in numerous sports (Club Hockey and Volleyball), I understand the importance of sports in people's lives, especially children. The lessons learned while part of a team are invaluable and necessary for children to persevere through life’s obstacles. All of which I deem important for my own son's growth and development.  This is why it is necessary for me to join the Pinball Clemons foundations team and help kids get a head start on life.

“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.

Students also engage in community support activities, volunteering, and a program called the “SpeakOut” where they travel to grade 7 and 8 classrooms across the city of Toronto and deliver a “stay in school” presentation based on their own life story and life choices.  Ambassador Students have spoken to nearly 30 000 grade 7-8 students over the past 10 years.  The core philosophy of the Ambassador Program is that every student can learn, achieve their goals, and realize their potential regardless of their socio-economic status, upbringing, or experiences.
