By Peggy Su
On April 13, Choi's will host its 15th Annual Break-a-thon fundraiser benefiting Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland. Two hundred Tae Kwon Do students, ages 4 and up, will break 2,000 boards. The national award winning Choi's Martial Arts Demo Team, ages 8 and up, will perform a martial arts exhibition for their local community, including VIP guests from their city councils and school districts. This exciting event will conclude with a check presentation to the guest of honor, Vania Deonizio, a Children's Miracle Network Coordinator from Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland.
Last year, 100 students raised together $12,000. This year, 200 students hope to raise $20,000. 100% of the proceeds will be directed to the children's hospital and used towards life-saving pediatric research.
The public is invited to attend this exciting event. Donations to Choi's Break-a-thon XV are tax-deductible. Prize donations for the top fundraising students are appreciated. Please contact Peggy Su, volunteer chair, at email@example.com.
