Boxing clubs across Canada celebrated ParticipAction’s National Boxing Day

For Canada's 150th anniversary, ParticipAction created the 150 Play List, the ultimate list of physical activities that define Canadians, and boxing is one of the featured activities. Throughout the year, the goal is to encourage Canadians to be active and try as many activities as possible.

For the occasion, boxing clubs from coasts to coasts opened their doors on September 9th in celebration for "ParticipAction's National Boxing Day" to encourage Canadians to discover boxing. This national celebration was a great success as the participating boxing clubs across the country offered a multitude of activities, accessible to everyone!

A big THANK YOU to all the boxing clubs who participated in this great initiative!


If you did not have a chance to try boxing this past week, don't worry, it's not too late! You can still find a boxing club near you to check off boxing from the 150 Play List!

ParticipAction' 150 Play List is the ultimate list of all the physical activities that define us Canadian and it was created as part of the celebration for Canada's 150th birthday.
