On Saturday, June 9th Kushindokai Karate and Fitness held their fifth annual Kick-a-Thon charity fundraiser, raising $8,050.00 for the Dufferin Children’s Fund. Over the two and a half hour event 54 students and instructors performed 98,915 kicks.
“We are so very pleased and honoured to have received this significant donation from Kushindokai Karate and Fitness,” says Jennifer Moore, Executive Director of DCAFS. “Money donated to the Dufferin Children’s Fund is used to support local children, youth and families receiving service from DCAFS in the areas of youth futures, social growth and development and health & wellness. The funds raised through this initiative will make a significant difference in our community – whether it be through supporting post-secondary education, paying for therapeutic interventions such as art therapy, purchasing special needs assistive devices or sending someone to camp for example – the generosity of those who supported this initiative will hold significant meaning for people in our community.”
