BGC Toronto Kiwanis is excited to announce our merger with the Cabbagetown Youth Centre.
With the support of the Kiwanis Club of Toronto and the Kiwanis Club of Toronto Foundation, we are moving forward with a partnership that will ensure the CYC programs and the Cabbagetown Boxing Club remain operational for many years to come.
Over the next few months, we will be working hard to solidify our merge and begin the necessary renovations to 2 Lancaster Avenue and return the facility to a fully operational building.
We are very excited about this expansion and plan to re-open the facility and its programs in early 2021. We will continue to provide updates over the next few months.
Thank you to our members, communities, and stakeholders for your support and encouragement. We are very excited about the future of BGC Toronto Kiwanis programming and the ability to serve our communities for many years to come.
Cabbagetown Youth Centre Boxing Club
When the Cabbagetown Boxing Club was founded in 1972, the Club focused on working with local youth through a boxing program.
In keeping with the Cabbagetown Youth Club’s (CYC) philosophy of responding to community needs, this boxing program was developed in direct response to requests from local youth.
In 1972, boxing drew many of the most needy children in from the street and taught them discipline, self-confidence and respect for one another.
We are excited to see what is to come in the future for the Cabbagetown Boxing Club.
