Every year the U.S. Taekwondo Center raises money by breaking boards for local charities. This year our goal is to raise $50,000 for the Memorial Hospital for Children. The Board Break-A-Thon is on September 15. If you are in the area and want to watch us break some boards, come to the City Auditorium (doors open at 9:30). It’s a free event! And for a small donation, you can break a board too, if you want to try it out.
So here’s the real deal. Mazie, Jamie, and I are breaking 5 wooden boards each. We are also competing between each other to see who can reach $200 first. So far the girls have $25 each and I’m straggling behind with $10.
The break-a-thon has been so much fun in the past. There are special demonstrations and some surprise guests. There is also a silent auction. I hear that Stahrs Cakes is donating a few goodies, in case you want to bid ;-)!
Ok so here’s how you donate…
1. You can send a check (made out to Memorial Hospital for Children) and send it to us and we will make sure it gets to the break-a-thon.
2. You could send us cash.
3. You could go online. Just make sure you state who you are donating on behalf (like the girls or all of us specifically). Also, if you can shoot me an email letting me know you have donated on our behalf that would be great.
On the website, the tax id # is listed, in case you need it.
Thanks, in advance, to those of you who donate. We appreciate it and we will be having fun next Saturday breaking the boards!
