Recently, K2 Martial Arts hosted it’s annual charity mini golf event.  This family day activity was well received; many students and their friends participated in playing mini putt with their coaches and Sensei’s.  This event was held in honour of  the Canadian Cancer Society, which is a national organization whose purpose is to promote the complete eradication of cancer, and to help those living with cancer enhance their quality of life.

Although the mini putt event was a great family experience in the spirit of the Martial Arts, our ultimate goal was to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.  The Canadian Cancer Society will use the funds towards important research to help combat cancer and creating a world where no one fears cancer.

In the various martial arts disciplines, such as Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Jiu-Jitsu, we understand the value of courage.  K2 appreciates the the spirit and strength of character shown by those who champion the fight against cancer.  K2 Martial Arts supports all the great work done by the  Canadian Cancer Society staff and volunteers. We understand that they are motivated through compassion; they work tirelessly with consideration, respect, and empathy for those families and individuals affected by cancer.  They share the K2 Martial Arts beliefs that all people should be treated with courtesy, respect and dignity.  We appreciate the effort to build an environment that welcomes volunteers and gives them an opportunity to contribute to this admirable cause.  We encourage our students and staff to participate in community causes and national charity organizations like the Canadian Cancer Society, so they may have a positive impact on their community.

A special thanks to Coach Art who worked extra hard behind the scenes to make this event a success.  We are very proud of all the young students who participated and made a contribution of one thousand dollars towards the Canadian Cancer Society.

Here’s a short video of the presentation day and some kind thoughts from the Canadian Cancer Society representative.
