Kick for Cures – Kick for a good cause

On November 16th my club, the ISKC, is sponsoring an event to help sick and needy families called Kick for Cures.  The way it works, is we go to one of four locations and do 1000 kicks and punches.  People sponsor us, either with a per kick donation or just a flat amount.

If you would like to sponsor me you can do so online at:  Kick for Cures at events.org.

Below is more information about where your donation goes.

Where does the money go?

  • The money is allocated to 3 funds
    • 10 Charities that provide support and cure research – 30%
      • Make A Wish Foundation Illinois Chapter
      • American Brain Tumor Association
      • American Cancer Society – Relay for Life – Amanda Riley’s Memorial Team
      • Bear Necessities – Pediatric Cancer Foundation
      • Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
      • Alzheimer’s Association
      • Michael J Fox Foundation (Parkinson’s Disease)
      • Augie’s Quest (ALS)
      • Autism Speaks
      • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
    • Families in Need – 30%
      • ISKC families impacted by catastrophic disease or disaster. Confidential recipients but the list is growing each year.
      • Nick’s Pavilion – Support for one of our students who has a rare metabolic disorder and is often in a wheel chair. This project is to build a first floor handicap accessible addition so Nick can be more self sufficient and lead an independent life. Nickspavilion.com needs to raise an additional $20,000 to do the project.
    • Jennifer Malloy Scholarship Fund – 40%
      • Provides the support for our college scholarship program in memory of Jennifer Malloy. The fund was started with a donation from Jennifer’s family after her death.

If you are in my club, I would like to personally ask you to come out and do this event and show your support not only for our club itself but for our instructors that share and teach us so many good things.

If you can show up to the event or donate, I would like to thank you in advance for doing so.

Thanks again.
