Sharing Disabled Pending Approval

One wave sets thousands in motion.

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

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

$430 towards $400

Alexandria and Evan have happily been a part of the Thousand Waves community since 2014. Their mission to create peacemakers has provided our kids with a safe and supportive environment to learn how to be a confident and compassionate person. We are asking for a contribution to this amazing organization, so that they can continue to provide the important and essential work that our world needs.

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!
