Fight for Families
Fourteen-year-old Jenna Homeniuk was diagnosed with Leukemia on August 19. She is receiving intensive treatment at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, and will not be home for quite some time.
This year’s Fight for Families Sparathon —Fisher Peak Challenge, will be dedicated to Jenna and organizers ask you to please help raise funds to assist her and her family by either sponsoring us, donating by coming to watch the event (admission by donation) and or buying one of Jenna’s official support Tee-Shirts.
Participants spar carefully, without aggression and with the minimum of contact in the spirit of helping each other grow and develop physical skills, mental discipline and spiritual growth. If done correctly with the correct attitude and spirit, any person, child or adult, woman or man, should be able to work hard and enjoy their developing skills together with a minimum of injury, if any at all.
The sparrathon is a “Sparring Marathon” with 48 x 60 second rounds to equal the amount of meters in height of “Fisher Peak”. The rounds will be one after another, continuously with 15 seconds in between each round to change sparring partners. It is estimated that most of the participants will burn around 1000 calories while attempting to complete this challenge. The entire proceeds will go to help Jenna.
The event happens on Saturday, September 22nd at 11 a.m. in Selkirk High School Gymnasium in Kimberley.
To make a donation, drop in to Cranbrook Glass on Van Horne Street or call 250-581-1042 for more information.
