Who: Students at karate schools are participating in a national challenge to kick as many times as they can in ten minutes. The challenge is a fundraiser for the Action Scholarship Fund. Dozens of karate schools across the country are participating.
When: During regular classes the week of February 21 to February 26.
Benefit: The Action Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to improve the mental and physical well-being of students through martial arts. The non-profit was started in 2021 in response to the decline in resources available for children and gaps in their education. The fund raises money through private donations, corporate partnerships and is making appeals through grant processes.
Donors: Donors can pledge as little as a nickel per kick or a flat amount for their friend or family member.
