100 Kata for World Karate Day – for ACF – 2021

October 24, 2021 all-day
Jamieson Hanlon
This year, the dojo will again be participating in the 100 Kata for Karate Day Challenge, an annual event since 2014, celebrated on October 25. Again this year, they are using it as an opportunity to raise money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. But this event takes on a very special meaning for them this time.
In January 2021, they lost their dear friend Sarah, a karate mom and wife and a stalwart supporter of the dojo, to cancer. Sarah had been with them since 2008, studying for a time with her family and eventually becoming the dojo’s treasurer. She also joined them on a very memorable training junket to Okinawa, Japan in 2016.
This year, it only seems fitting that they remember and honour Sarah’s dedication and devotion to the dojo by training hard and raising money to support the foundation’s research and its support for Albertans living with cancer.

For Julie, a voicemail changed everything.

Stage four cancer.

Sadly, she is not alone. One in two Albertans will hear the words, “you have cancer” in their lifetime and One in four will not survive.

We need to do more. With your help we can.
