"Gloves for Grief was so much more than we expected it to be. It honestly felt more like a homecoming than an event to us because it was so welcoming, so raw and emotional, and so spiritually healing all at the same time."

"Sometimes, grief takes us in places where we feel powerless, overwhelmed and maybe even angry at times and this event provided such a beautiful— and more importantly —safe outlet for all of those emotions so we could release them all and recenter."

"It wasn’t about how strong you could punch, or how in shape you were—we just all came as we were, we cried if we needed to, and we did whatever felt right in our hearts. It also reinforced our purpose because after all, we are still living!"

"We were reminded that we were not alone. We even got to make crafts to honor our sweet Frankie and got to take home a memento. We couldn’t be more thankful for this event, and already looking forward to the next one."

The theme for a recent event was “Empower” - finding inner strength and power through your pain. Our goal is for you to find a grief community where you feel seen and heard, and provide a positive outlet for release. We have an amazing network of vendors who create opportunities for self-care and remembrance of your loved one.

We will always remember who we are punching for and we're dedicated to creating experiences and a resilient community that supports each other for life.

Not just events, but lifelong strength and community —

The event experience itself is unlike any other. Our workouts are led by Functional Movement & Boxing Fitness specialist Ashley Guarrasi.

We have an amazing network of vendors who create opportunities for self-care and remembrance of your loved one. We will always remember who we are punching for. An important part of our events is incorporating unique ways to remember our loved ones, like permanent jewelry or crafts that can be taken home as a momento.

"With every sweat fell tears, and as our heartbeat became more palpable in our chest, we found a new drive and purpose—to keep going, to keep fighting, and to keep raising awareness so that our little angel’s loss would not go in vain."

"Ashley was amazing, she walked us through every drill using creatively chosen songs that helped us punch through our pain. With each hit, we felt seen; with each jab, we felt like we were understood despite of how deep and cumbersome our sorrow was."

"It wasn’t about how strong you could punch, or how in shape you were—we just all came as we were, we cried if we needed to, and we did whatever felt right in our hearts. It also reinforced our purpose because after all, we are still living!"
