Over Thirty Five participants included beginner students, black belts, non student children and adults executed 500 kicks during the one hour event and generated over $2800 in donations from their generous sponsors.
The event was organized and run by Villari’s Program Director, Melissa Roberts, and was part of the Uwchlan Ambulance Community Day which drew local residents from Lionville, Downingtown, Exton, Phoenixville, Glenmoore, and Chester Springs. Melissa reported that “everyone had great fun and enjoyed the unique training opportunity provided by the Kick-a-Thon.” Students and supporters expressed satisfaction knowing that they were helping raise funds to support the their First Responders.
Organizers said the Kick-a-thon was very easy to plan and organize with the support materials and other resources provided by the owner of Villari’s of Chester Springs. The Kick-a-Thon packets contained ready made sponsor forms, envelopes, detailed execution of gaining sponsors, with prizes and incentive for all who participate and generating student interest and participation was easy.
We are very proud of all our students and sponsors. Thank all of you for your help in making our 2017 Kick-A-Thon a success!
