Urban Kickboxing Centre recently organised a sponsored
KICK-A-THON event where 19 members of the Centre got together on a saturday morning, with the goal of completing 50,000 roundhouse kicks collectively in 7 hours.
The event took place at the Centre on Bristol Road in
Gloucester in hopes to raise as much money as possible for some of the members who are competing in the US Open
tournament in Florida, USA in July this year.
Each individual looked for sponsors & tried to raise as much as they could. They totalled the sponsors and fantastically
managed to raise £2289.60!
The members kicked, sweat, pushed hard and showed what they were made of, managing to get to 68,200 roundhouse kicks!
Lots of the members who attended the sponsored event were children, even as young as 7 years old, most of which will be competing in Florida.
Other members who aren’t going along to Florida grabbed a sponsor form and joined the event at the centre. They took 7 hours out of their saturday to help raise money for their team mates. Complete team spirit.
Urban Centre and all their members would like to thank every single person who sponsored them so generously, which meant the 7 hours of hard work was definitley worth it!
Please keep an eye out for the teams journey to USA for the World’s largest Kickboxing tournament in July this year.
