It’s Kick-a-thon Time!

On Saturday, June 26 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., Sifu Rita and UMAC student Drew will be participating in a UMAC-sponsored kick-a-thon at Endicott Park in Danvers, MA at Endicott Park Day during the Danvers Family Festival. The kick-a-thon will raise money to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is the sixth year UMAC has conducted a kick-a-thon for St. Jude, and over the past five years, Sifu Rita and UMAC have raised more than $20,000 for the hospital. This year’s kick-a-thon is particularly special because on June 28, Drew will celebrate five years in remission from leukemia!  

As in years past, UMAC will also run its lemonade stand and raffle at the festival where all proceeds will go to benefit St. Jude. Raffle tickets will be sold for a Red Sox Blanket, and raffle tickets can be purchased until June 26. Tickets are one for $3.00, three for $5.00, 10 for $7.00 and the length of your arm for $15.00.

This is a great opportunity to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and celebrate this exciting milestone with Drew. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 978-762-0454. We hope to see you there!

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly. All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family’s ability to pay.
