Kick-a-thon a Success!

On June 26, 2010, United Martial Arts Center (UMAC) was proud to sponsor its sixth Kick-a-thon that benefited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. It was held at Endicott Park during the Danvers Family Festival.

United Martial Arts Center’s students attended the event where the Chief Instructor, Sifu Anthony Pasquale, led the students through a series of kicks and stretches. The studio also sold lemonade and raffle tickets to benefit the charity.

During the event the studio celebrated one student’s fifth year in remission from Leukemia, and UMAC presented him with a trophy that read: “Drew is an inspiration to everyone at UMAC.”

“Special Events for St. Jude like our Kick-a-thon blend crucial support and awareness for St. Jude with a fun experience that also brings together our community,” said Sifu Rita Rose Pasquale, coordinator of the event. “Every person who participates in an event helps the hospital find cures and save children. This is our sixth event for St. Jude and we have raised a total of $25,000 for the charity. I am very proud of my students; I couldn’t do this without them.”

UMAC wants to thank everyone who participated and made the Kick-a-thon a success! You can visit UMAC’s Facebook page for more photos and highlights from the event. Please check out our events page for UMAC’s upcoming events and scheduling.
