Kick-a-thon for the Relay

Posted on July 16, 2012

Relay for Life fundraising is in full swing at MPK. We will be holding an “MPK Kick-a-thon” at the July 28 Relay for Life event in DeForest.

We have your board kit at the studio for $3. The kit includes: your board, envelope, and a script of what to say when seeking donations. Our goal for the studio is to have 100 students to raise $100. That’s a BIG goal, but there’s no doubt it’s a worthy one.

Stop in, pick up your kit, and get started today. The Relay is on July 28 and we are going to do a demo followed by the kick-a-thon. The karate demo is at 7:30 pm. It’s going to be a fun and exciting event!
