We will be hosting our fourth annual “kick-a-thon” on Saturday, March 21st, from 1:00pm – 2:30pm as a fundraiser to help continue the Doug Beale III Scholarship Program.This program was put in place to honor Doug, who was one of our most dedicated students, and was tragically killed in a traffic collision on March 25th, 2006.
The program helps underprivileged folks in our community take martial arts lessons. Last year we raised over $2400 and helped pay for 54 months of lessons to students who otherwise would not have been able to afford it! The fund was over-extended by $1616. (Many needed help this last year.)
We’re looking forward to helping others in our community through the arts! Pledge sheets, along with details, are attached as page 4 of this month’s newsletter. Donations may also be made at the desk or by sending a check to the school w/ a notation in the “memo” line that funds are for the scholarship program.
Come. Get a great workout, and support a worthy cause. You don’t have to be a member of the dojo to join in… all are welcome!
