On the evening of May 22, ten members of Shorinji Kempo Toronto Branch held their annual charity "Kickathon" in aid of drug addiction research and treatments offered by CAMH.
Five hundred kicks and a lot of yelling later we were extremely pleased to have raised over $8,300 for CAMH's drug addiction programs.
Update: We have now finished collecting donations and are delighted to announce that the final total raised in this year's event was $8,745.
We would like to thank our many generous sponsors for their kind consideration in funding our initiative and also the CAMH Foundation for logistics and support.
Since this event was first held we have raised $110,715 for the programs of CAMH.
