In 2006 I was a sophomore at East Pennsboro High School in Enola, PA. I wanted to help make that holiday season a more enjoyable event for a child by answering a wish request or some similar gesture. My desire grew into an event that helped far more than one child.
This event, Min's Karate Charity Break-A-Thon fundraiser allows me, and other people, to distribute hope and assistance to those who need it.
The students of Min's Karate Academy in Camp Hill, PA gathered per-board pledges and flat donations and had a blast while raising money for the three charities featured on this page.
The 4th Karate Charity Break-A-Thon raised $918. The total amount raised for all four events was about $5,580.
This year, I am proud to be holding the Fifth Min's Karate Charity Break-A-Thon fundraiser on February 22, 2014. I would like to thank everyone who helped make the first four events a success and trust this year's Break-A-Thon will be the best yet.
Thank you to everyone who participated in & supported the 5th Karate Charity Break-A-Thon Fundraiser.
Fox News reported on the event.
We will be collecting pledges over the next 2 weeks and will update the site to reflect the total amount collected.
Individual sponsors, our board breakers depend upon your per-board pledges to raise money for our charities. Please let us know how many dollars per broken board you wish to donate and the maximum number of broken boards you are willing to sponsor. If you already know the student you want to sponsor, tell us his or her name. Otherwise, we will distribute pledges evenly among those who have signed up to break boards and let you know who will be breaking boards for you. Please send your per-board pledge to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to make a flat donation, please mail your check (payable
