A local tae kwon do center broke some boards to raise awareness about cancer at Redeemer Lutheran School in Green Bay.
Kim’s Tae Kwon Do center teamed up with the Breast Cancer Family Foundation to raise money for the foundation’s education programing in local schools.
Instructors at Kim’s say the breaking boards marathon was a fun way for students to apply their skills while raising money for a good cause.
Dollars were raised through a raffle, silent auction and food sale.
To date, the Breast Cancer Family Foundation has reached almost 70,000 students in the state of Wisconsin through their cancer prevention education programs.
The reality is that nearly half of all of our cancer diagnosis in the United States can be reduced in severity or reduced altogether by leading a healthy cancer free lifestyle,” says Diane Gaywont from the Breast Cancer Family Foundation. “So this is just the start of getting that education out, it’s so powerful.”
Last year the event raised more than $12,600; they were hoping to break that record.
