Girls In Gloves (GIG) in as initiative set up by Wimborne Amateur Boxing Club to help tackle the rise in mental health problems amongst young women and girls and to also increase female activity levels
In todays world young girls have to contend with countless pressures, stresses and potentially negative influences such as bullying, Peer Pressure and feeling excluded and it can leave them feeling depressed, anxious and lonely with low self esteem.
The GIG program is trying to address these issues within the schools by promoting Wellness and Positive mental health through Boxing and Fitness. Our proactive approach to mental health gives girls the chance to focus on something positive, be apart of a team and be able to talk about anything they feel is bothering them.
The GIG program is funded through our own events, fundraisers donations and Go Fund Me.
We feel we can make a real difference in a lot of girls lives so please help to share our program.
