£5,000 raised for Clan at UKSA fundraising event
UKSA martial artists train for 13 hours for local North East charity Clan..........................
Saturday 5th May saw a dedicated team of martial artists from award winning martial art Sooyang Do, taking on a 13 hour through the night fundraising martial art training session based on the unique Sooyang Do focus mitt drills.
Was it easy? No. Worth it? Absolutely!
Starting at 7pm at the Westdyke Leisure Centre on the Saturday night and ending at 8am on the Sunday morning dedicated students of all ages showed true martial art indomitable spirit by training throughout the night and NEVER giving up.
This was the 10th such event and the last one for Westhill Chief Instructor and original organiser Dave Bremner - "having done this for so long now, its time for this 60 plus year old martial art instructor to step back and let the younger instructors take over and make this event even more successful".
CLAN cancer relief is the main charity that benefited from this Sooyang Do fund raising event, and every penny was hard fought for.
Pictured below receiving the cheque, is Clan representative Moureen Wilson, who was amazed with the amount raised and on behalf of Clan, expressed her sincere gratitude to everyone.
The cheque was presented at Clan house on 27th June 2017 by Event Organiser Mr Bremner and Marketing Officer Mrs McIver, both of them sporting their 10th Anniversary Focusmittathon T-shirt by Mo & Co.
This years event had a great team of Instructors, students and helpers and we received great donations from Tesco, Haigs Food Hall and Warburtons, all of which supplied refreshments for the participants.
