Kicking for Miracles — April 7, 2018
Buffalo State College Sports Arena, 10 am - 1 pm
Similar to a walk-a-thon or a dance-a-thon, Kicking for Miracles is a board break-a-thon. Students of all ages and belt ranks ask friends, family, and neighbors to pledge donations in recognition of the student’s skill and effort at the event. On the day of the event, students break boards with a variety of Tae Kwon Do kicks, punches and strikes. One hundred percent of the profits from the event will be donated to Oishei Children’s Hospital.
Since it’s inception in 1995 (known then as Health Kick), Master Chong’s Tae Kwon has raised close to $1.2 Million to benefit the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and Oishei Children’s Hospital.
“The experience,” says Grandmaster Chong “is good for the community and students alike. The spirit of Tae Kwon Do is to develop oneself physically, mentally, and spiritually. As instructors, we then encourage our students to apply their increased abilities into their daily lives. Kicking for Miracles is an excellent example of that philosophy put into action. Students of all ages realize how their combined efforts can make a tremendously positive impact on the lives of others.”
Kicking for Miracles is the perfect opportunity for businesses to promote their company to over 2000 families, while at the same time helping an invaluable community resource. Sponsor Logos will be featured on this site with a link to their business.
Help us make our 2018 fundraising effort our largest yet! Monies raised will go to the new John R Oishei Children’s Hospital.
