Jordan Garcia-Marciniak's Fundraiser

One wave sets thousands in motion.

Our annual fundraiser supports scholarships, our Adapted Seido Karate program, and Violence Prevention outreach in the community.

$660 towards $2,000

Please support me in my effort to continue the work of an organization that has been a big part of my life for the past 18 years. It began as my first non-team sport and continues as my place of employment today. The community that we build is only possible by the support we receive from our family and friends during this annual fundraiser.

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!
