TaeKwonDo Board Break-A-Thon Raises $2,000 for Krause

clip_image001I accompanied a group of Krause kids to the Katy Taekwondo Academy’s “Board Break-A-Thon” on Saturday, May 5th.  It was a “smashing” event, and a fun fundraiser for Krause Children’s Center. Kids from ages 5 to 50, preschoolers to black belts, competed in the Break-A-Thon.

We all watched in amazement as the splinters flew and the boards grew in a mound in the middle of the floor. It was quite a pile! The Krause kids were so amazed at how disciplined the little kids were and how they were able to break the boards with their hands and feet. All broken boards are donated to the Boy Scouts.

The funds raised from this event totaled $4,000, and $2,000 went to the Krause Children’s Center to restart our library. The other $2,000 will sponsor scholarships for other children to attend Academy classes.

One of the Krause kids was familiar with TaeKwonDo and impressed us when he broke a board with one punch. Hiiieeeyahh!
