Total raised: $9,250.00
The members of Shorinji Kempo Toronto Branch held the 20th Annual Charity Kickathon
in aid of the CAMH Foundation
in the Main Gym of the CAMH Russell St site on the evening of May 27.
In this event we received sponsorship for performing 500 consecutive kicks (jun geri, gyaku geri
) with full kiai
. Surprisingly, we were able to manage fine despite the physical toll of the weekend long Cornell Camp a few days before.
We are pleased to announce that this year's event raised a total of $9,250 to support the activities of CAMH in the field of drug addiction (research into causes of addiction and support for treatment programs).
We wish to
warmly thank our kind sponsors for their wonderful and loyal support. In addition, we wish to thank Lidia Franchitto and her team at the CAMH Foundation for their expert logistical
Since the Kickathon
event was launched we have raised a total of $130,140 for this important cause.
