Each year the students of Shudokan Family Karate Centre, 5125 Harvester Road in Burlington, host a charity board breaking event. This year’s fundraising initiative supports healthy eating at school!
Students as young as 4 years old are given a board for 2 weeks to take with them when they visit friends, neighbours and school and ask for a Toonie as a donation. They also ask that the donor sign the board.
During those 2 weeks, students practice breaking re-useable boards in class.
The signed / donation boards are then brought to class and broken in front of family and other students. The boy and girl who brings in the most donations receive a dojo t-shirt.
The Shudokan Team believes this annual initiative inspires children to assert themselves on a project that they are interested in doing, which assists in their personal growth.
“This is a win win project that builds personal confidence in the students and teaches them to share.
We believe this will help create future citizens of good character.”
