As many of my wonderful readers may already be aware, I am a martial artist. Aside from my family and being a writer that advocates for mental health and wellness, it is one of the most important parts of my life.
Martial arts changed my life. Just a year ago, I was in an awful place with myself and bipolar disorder. That’s when I walked into my first class, where I began my path as a martial artist. It started to heal me in ways that medicine and therapy just couldn’t.
Martial arts gave me a new lease on life.
Now, it’s my turn to give back.
My dojang, in affiliation with other local dojangs, is participating in the annual St. Jude’s Break-a-thon. For every $15 raised, one board is donated to the participant to break.
We break as a symbol of the strength we are hoping to provide these children in need. I want to give these children their own new lease on life by providing them with funds so they may be able to live on.
Please, support this noble cause by sponsoring me in this event.
No donation is too small. Every dollar that is donated goes directly to St. Jude and to the children that they treat.
And in advance, thanks for your donation. It not only means the world to me, but it may open up a whole new world for many children in their hour of need.
Yes, that is my real name. This is the first connection that I’ve made between my real life and my life here. I’m proud of who I am, and I’m ready to make a difference in all areas of my life.
