Using Kickboxing to Kick Cancer’s Butt
The organization of Tiger Schulmann’s has been teaching Martial Arts for over 30 years. In that time we have been very much apart of the community, especially in raising money for charity. One fundraiser was close to my heart. As a father I can never think about losing my son, but there is one family that is. His name is Mikey, and he has terminal cancer.
One of my students is good friends with Mikey and his parents. Once I heard of Mikey I new I had to help!! With the help of my students spreading the word we raised 2,500 dollars! Yesterday September 28th here at the Nanuet Tiger Schulmann’s we taught beginner kickboxing classes and asked for a donation of 20 per person.
The day started out with our adult kickboxing class. The mat was packed and you can feel the energy throughout the room. Nothing like getting an amazing workout while helping Mikey. After the adults we had our kids classes. These kids had such great energy and were very focused! It was really nice for everyone to come together and help others who can’t help themselves!
