EVENT: Fight The Stigma, A Mental Health Awareness Class + Discussion @ Overthrow NYC 4/20!

420-stigma-2019

Mental health awareness is a topic that is very important to me, having struggled with anxiety and depression, and having many friends and family members who live with these conditions and more, each and every day. My cousin Ashley introduced me to NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness a few years back when she was fundraising for their annual 5K Walk and Run in NYC. When she mentioned her idea to me of holding a fundraiser for her NAMI Walk team this year at Overthrow New York, the boxing gym that I currently work at as Event Manager, I was all in. Together we bring you Fight The Stigma, A Mental Health Awareness Boxing Class + Discussion. We will begin with a high-intensity boxing class, followed up by a panel discussion fighting the stigma of what mental illness looks like, as well as highlighting the therapeutic uses of CBD for anxiety, depression, and muscle aches.

Panelists include:

  • Ashley Johnston- NAMI Advocate + Athlete
  • Ida Lomibao-Kashif – Former Bodybuilder + Raising Awareness for Postpartum Depression
  • Cynthia Scott- NAMI Volunteer
  • Steven Phan- Owner of Come Back Daily
  • Moderated by Andrea K. Castillo (me!)

All info is below. You may register here. Looking forward to fighting the stigma with you!

Event: Camel Assembly x Overthrow Present #GrabMyGloves, Bringing Awareness To Domestic and Sexual Abuse, Sun. 11/20/16

For a little over a year now, I have been a part of a wonderful women’s collective called Camel Assembly. Spearheaded by my good friend and fellow Sistergoddess, Yelda Ali, we gather for monthly assemblies to exchange ideas, team build, and collaborate for the greater good. This Sunday, November 20th, we are holding a very special assembly paired with an incredibly important social campaign for our fellow women; raising awareness for domestic and sexual abuse.

The #GrabMyGloves campaign is the vision of Sistergoddess Heather Ovieda, whose aim was to use assembly as a means to raise social awareness for a cause too many women unfortunately succumb to at some point in their lives. The women-only event will be held at Overthrow Boxing Club, where attendees/spectators will be able to view select Camels sparring for charity in the ring. Following this will be a panel discussion featuring three of Overthrow’s female trainers Alicia Napoleon, Melissa St. Vil, and Ronica Jeffrey, where they will tell their stories and personal experiences with domestic and/or sexual abuse. I am humbled to be interviewing the fighters and moderating the discussion. It will definitely be a powerful moment where our voices will be heard!

Tickets for the event are $30 a seat, with proceeds going to the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence. The main event will be at Overthrow Boxing from 3-5pm. The “afterparty” will be at Gelso & Grand from 5-8pm. Tickets are still available for purchase now. Grab yours here. If you are unable to attend, or are a man (sorry guys!), you can still donate whatever you can to help support the cause. Hoping to see you on Sunday!
