The Northern Dutchess Relay For Life took place on a sunny, slightly windy day in June. However, T&T Karate had been fundraising since late April. We chose to raise funds for the Relay because the American Cancer Society does a lot of good, and every single person is affected by cancer.
Personally, I wanted to support the Relay because I know the enormous burden of medical expenses. I have many chronic illnesses that cost me a lot of money... but my burden is small compared to families and individuals who are touched by cancer. The American Cancer Society helps pay for everything from treatment, to rides, to household expenses.
Thus, we chose to support the Relay. And it was a ton of fun!
We had three fundraisers for our students to participate in:
which brought us to 2nd place in all of the teams.
Master T. and I are so incredibly proud of all the students involved! Thank you students, families, and strangers for your support!
