J. K. Lee Raises $50,000 to Fight Children’s Cancer

February 18, 2006

At J. K. Lee Black Belt Academy you don’t just learn to fight; you pledge to make the world better. Our students take this oath very seriously and today they proved it. Our Board Break-A-Thon raised over $50,000 for the cancer research program at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

The break-a-thon was held in the center court at Mayfair mall, where patrons were treated to quite a spectacle. Our students broke stacks and stacks of boards. There were gasps; there was applause; there were showers of splinters; there were jumps, spins, kicks, chops, punches and loud yells. We invited the shoppers themselves to break boards, too, if they donated – and lots of them did. Plus, there were special demonstrations every hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Me? I spent the day handing out t-shirts, helping little ones find where they needed to be, and taking lots of pictures. Did I break any boards? Of course! I was in the 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. demonstrations.

If you didn’t get a chance to donate, don’t worry! We are accepting donations until the end of March. drop me a line if you want to help. Meanwhile, check out some of the pictures!

  1. Those pics are still awesome. Great noise for 1600!

  2. Thanks. One of the best things about the D50 is the high ISO noise reduction.

  3. Wow, I am truly amazed that when a goal is set, and committed to, it will be achieved. By raising the bar each and every year, J.K. Lee helps one understand that great things can be realized, and build a more peaceful world, one person at a time. I am so honored and humbled to be a part of such an organization.

    Thank you for bringing this to the world. You are awesome!

    p.s., I am so sorry that I could not be there on Saturday, I was sick and home in bed most of the day! 😦
