As you may know, I have become a devoted martial artist. I am expressing gratitude for this new path by raising $400 for my karate school, Thousand Waves. Thousand Waves is a not for profit organization that has been active for over 32 years and has made a positive impact on the lives of thousands of adults and children, including my son and my husband. In addition to providing training in traditional martial arts, they run Adapted Seido Karate (ASK), a program for youth with disabilities, and provide Self-Defense/Violence Prevention programming all over the City of Chicago. You can learn more about Thousand Waves at their web site: www.thousandwaves.org. I am doing this to thank Thousand Waves for putting me on the path to health and fitness and helping me develop the confidence that has helped me take on all sorts of challenges, both physical and mental. For example, thanks to my training at Thousand Waves, I was able to tackle a solo hike on the John Muir Trail last summer. Please consider any donation to support the work of this amazing and one of a kind organization.
Thanks so much,
