On October 15, splinters flew and broken boards mounded as the afternoon’s exciting annual Board Break-A-Thon event progressed from TaeKwonDo demonstrations to board smashing. Katy TaeKwonDo students, from Tiger Cub pre-schoolers to fifth degree black belts, broke hundreds of pine boards all in an effort to support the Katy TaeKwonDo Academy C3 Booster Club’s community program, “No Artist Left Behind” and the UT Mitochondrial Clinic in honor of Katy TaeKwonDo Academy’s Pohla family.
As announcements were made, anxious to smash them into splinters, students eyed their stacks of boards for which they raised money to break. This year’s event raised some $6,000 which brought the Board Break-A-Thon’s total funds raised over the years for Katy community programs to over $40,000!
C3 Booster Club Board Members who organized this event include: Nilesh Popat (President), Jay Furman (Vice President), Scott Kornblau (Treasurer), Tracy Majtahed (Secretary), Angus Pollard (Academy Representative), Farrell Hochmuth (Legal Counsel). For the third year in a row, Katy TaeKwonDo Student Dawson Seago raised the most funds with $1500 in donations!
To conclude the Board Break-A-Thon, in front of a mound of broken boards, a UT Mitochondrial Clinic staff member Dr. Mary Kay Koenig presented “Mito Mike” stuffed animals to the top fund raiser children Dawson Seago, William Schmidt, Catherine Weldon, and Christina Weldon.
