11/6/21 - Students had a great time at our Karate-thon to benefit the Children's Hospital Foundation. They earned points for forms, sparring, board breaking, and knowledge questions.

We were happy to present a check to the Children's Hospital Foundation for $74,697 raised at this year's events. Thank you for helping make the 50th anniversary event a success!
