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.
We are very excited about this expansion and plan to roll out after school programs in the winter of 2023. 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.
On September 10th, we hosted our Reopening of the Cabbagetown Youth Centre and Boxing Club event. We had over 150 people in attendance. Keynote speakers Mayor John Tory, former Mayor Barbara Hall, and MPP Kristyn Wong-Tam.
On behalf of the dedicated staff, volunteers, and all supporters of BGC Toronto Kiwanis and Cabbagetown Youth Centre, we extend our gratitude to all our well-wishers for making the reopening of the centre and the Boxing Club such a success!
The reopening is a testimony of our commitment, hard work, and time invested by several individuals. We want to thank everyone for making it a reality.
We want to thank the community for coming out and supporting the Cabbagetown Youth Centre and Boxing Club’s official reopening. We are thrilled to see our community’s outpouring of support.
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.
