Local PKA Kickboxing Charity Tournament

I am pleased to be part of a Charity Kickboxing Tournament be organized by local PKA clubs to raise money for the Huntingtons Disease Association  which is close to a few of my students hearts after they have recently lost family members and are suffers themselves.

 

HD: What is Huntington’s disease?

Huntington’s disease, which is often called HD, is an hereditary disorder of the central nervous system.

It used to be known as Huntington’s Chorea or HC.

Huntington’s disease usually develops in adulthood and can cause a very wide range of symptoms.

The disease affects both men and women.

 

The event which will be held at the Rutland Sports Park, Ilkeston will consist of light contact sparring, Points fighting and junior padwork demonstrations. We are also organizing a raffle which already many students and local businesses have very generously donated some fantastic prizes. As well as the kickboxing matches & raffle there will also be a refreshment stand and free parking.

We are hoping to raise as much money as we can from the tournament and all profits/proceeds will be donated.

If you can help in anyway or would like to donated a raffle prize, buy a spectator ticket please use the contact me page!

      I’ve lost a good friend to Huntington’s disease and I’m truly moved by this event you’ve set up to raise money for the Huntington’s Disease Association. I mean, it doesn’t matter what ailment we’re talking about of course, what matters is that you’re helping people. I hope you guys have something great like this planned for the year 2013 as well, just say the word and I’ll be there with my mates to support the event. You know the old saying, “As you sow so shall you reap”, if anyone asks me for a contractor, I know exactly which company I’ll be recommending them to.
