Katy, TX (August30, 2016) “The students look forward to the event with anticipation. Some of our youngest students end up with stacks of boards taller than themselves and they break every one of them! We are thrilled by the enthusiasm our students put in to this event,” said Master Michael Reade, the lead instructor at the academy.
The event raises funds to be split between its own non-profit organization, the C3 Booster Club, and one local charity. The C3 Booster Club provides support for families in the organization to ensure that their students are able to continue their martial arts training through difficult financial times. They also sponsor one student from the surrounding area who would normally not be able to afford a martial arts education.
Last year, the event raised over $8,000 which was split between the C3 Booster Club and last year’s charity, Lunches of Love. This year’s event will support the C3 Booster Club and The Brookwood Community. Brookwood is located 15 miles west of Katy in Brookshire, TX. The facility is a non-profit organization which provides residential and vocational training programs to disabled adults. As part of its job training program, the organization runs a restaurant and wedding venue on site. Reservations are necessary if you want to snag a table for lunch! (And it is worth it.) The Brookwood Community will have a representative at the event to accept the donation and provide additional information on the Community and all it offers.
On Saturday, September 17th, Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Katy will host its annual Board Break-A-Thon for the sixth year in a row. The event will be held at their facility located at 625 S. Mason Road in Katy from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. The students of the Martial Arts academy raise money in the weeks prior to the event through the sale of wooden boards. On the day of the event, each student exhibits their martial arts skills by breaking every board they sold.
