On Saturday 10th May we are going to run a sparathon at the Trident Academy to raise money for a friend of mine Daniela Bright.
Daniela was a member of the GTUK England Team when I was the coach and travelled around the UK and Europe competing. She moved to America to live and I recently found out that she has been diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer at the age of 29. She has no medical insurance that will cover this in America and because of the condition she was not allowed to fly back to the UK. She needs help raising money so that she can continue her treatment and get well.
Daniela loves sparring so a thought that we should spar for her from 9am to 5pm. Not only will you be raising money for Daniela, you will also be challenging yourself to an hour of sparring. If you don't have sparring kit and would still like to get involved you can do tiggy shoulder or no contact sparring.
Instead of collecting sponsorship we would like to sake for a donation of £3 for kids and £5 for adults. We will also be running the Trident Cafe with all profits going to Daniela. Lastly we will hopefully be selling tickets in our clubs and academy for our raffle. Any help would be most appreciated.
On Saturday all the classes and squad will run as normal with the sparathon being held behind the curtain on the dojang for the morning and in the non matted dojang for the afternoon.
If you could all do me a big favour and tell me (by email) if you would like to take part and which hour of the day you would like to get involved with. For example:
and so on........... If we have really busy hours then you may not have to spar so much :)
Its going to be a great day and it is a great cause.
