The Watch Factory Shoppes in Cheshire were the site of the "Kicking for Miracles" fundraising event. This was the part of an overall fundraising campaign for Cheshire-based Abilities without Boundaries sponsored by Olympic Taekwondo Academy. The campaign raised $1826.56.
“Abilities Without Boundaries is a strong advocate for the rights of people with developmental disabilities. For more than 30 years, we have been helping to make a difference. You too can become an advocate by spreading the word and supporting Abilities Without Boundaries.
Olympic Taekwondo Academy has been running the "Kicking for Miracles" fundraising campaign since August. The students have collected pledges based on number of kicks in a minute or a simple flat donation. Saturday's event included demonstrations by students and Masters, board breaking, food, games and music. All of the supplies for this fundraising campaign were donated so that every penny raised could go to Abilities without Boundaries. Over $1000 has been raised so far.
Olympic Taekwondo Academy is owned and operated by Cheshire residents Master Jonguk Jang and his wife, Hyun Jung An. The school opened in June 2012 in the Watch Factory Shoppes in Cheshire.
