This is a special year for our family in karate! The twins are going strong on their journey through brown belt, Lillian has just reached Junior Shodan (black belt)!!! and I (Olivia) am a newly minted blue belt. I'm so excited to be participating shoulder to shoulder as a student with my kiddos in this year's Spirit Challenge!

Please consider supporting the amazing Thousand Waves community! Here is a little bit about TW and the great work they do:

Thousand Waves is a mission-driven not-for-profit in the city of Chicago that has been active in the community for over 32 years with a mission to foster fitness, healing, empowerment, and peacemaking.

Spirit Challenge Fundraiser supports Thousand Waves' work in three critical areas:

  • Scholarships, which provide funding for children and adults who wouldn't otherwise be able to study karate or self-defense.
  • Adapted Seido Karate (ASK), a partnership with RIC that provides karate for youth with disabilities.
  • Self-Defense/Violence Prevention, which provides Self-defense and Bystander Intervention workshops and courses all over the city.

Thousand Waves' name comes from the Japanese saying, "One wave sets thousands in motion." Just one donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for Thousand Waves. Thank you for your support!
