    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    JJ Ashdown a 7 year old student at KBT was diagnosed with ALD, a rare brain disease. JJ has spent all of 2016 under going intense treatment, and he still manages to put a smile on his face.

    KBT taekwondo academy have set all students with the task of raising money for JJ and his family. The task is a 1000 kick (continuous) challenge. Now this may sound simple but trust me this is going to be a tough ask for all who carry out the challenge. In addition to 1000 kicks we are also going to do 1000 continuous punches.

    I will be taking part in this challenge and so need sponsors. Please donate while you can to give JJ a fighting chance.

      Done it! Smashed it in fact!! About a dozen of us started, each having their own idea on how best to approach it. Pacing was the key for me. All good but a bit stiff and sore now! Absolutely worth every minute of it Thanks again to you all for your amazing generosity I will let you know what the final tally is when it is all in!
