1000 Cut Challenge Fundraiser
June 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Hey folks – it’s a 1000 Cut Challenge! Purpose: raise funds for Team Canada Kendo, the Cambridge Kendo Club, and the Niagara Kendo Club.
No entry fee if you collect at least $250 in pledges (bring on the day). Otherwise, entry fee is $40. Lunch and refreshments is included for all participants.
This year, we’re sending a team to the World Kendo Championships. The Canadian Kendo Team receives relatively little financial support. Every dollar we raise for their efforts is helpful, letting team members focus more on their training and less on their finances.
Outside of Toronto, it’s difficult to create and maintain a vibrant Kendo community. The Cambridge Kendo Club is in need of financial assistance to help recruit enough members to keep their space. When you run a non-profit, volunteer-driven, community-oriented club, there are still expenses that must be paid. A portion of monies raised will be donated to the Cambridge Kendo Club for their needs.
The Niagara Kendo Club has been training people in Kendo and Iaido since 2004. We’re doing okay, but to help support our mission of making Kendo accessible and affordable to everyone, we are looking to rejuvenate our club equipment and purchase some new training aids. A portion of monies raised will be donated to the Niagara Kendo Club.
